    So I have been working on this marblewood bowl for a little while now. Design change from the original roughed out blank. I had it drying for about a year. Decided to make it differently.
    Came out really good. Till I tried turning off the bottom where it was chucked in. I got a catch and it flew into the ceiling and landed on the floor in pieces.
    Win some, lose some....

    Man, sorry to hear that especially after waiting a year.

    Any chance to make a small plate for keys, pocket change, or just have in the shop? Beautiful wood!

    That's too bad, Marck. My first 2 years were like that. Win one or two, then lose one. It happens....... At least your shoes are stylish........ Better than those Florida boys with their flip flops, or maybe thongs?? Oh, that's something I don't need to think of.... .. Jerry (in Tucson)

    That would have me pacing the shop and not in a good way. Probably end up outdoors for a little steam release. Tough break my friend, we've all been there.

    The bottom is still thick, so maybe some pen blanks. Lol

    I think if you find the right art gallery and come up with catchy name it would be worth a fortune.:good2:

    Well, since it's apart and it's not supposed to be . . . Duct Tape!

    Just glad that the only injury was to the bowl.

    I was thinking a little black epoxy surrounding all the pieces, stick it back together, a little sanding and no one will ever know. It is marblewood after all! :sofa:
