« Part 2: Set up and turning! Part 3 of Our new lathe series no next part

Big limb came down in our woods and my husband decided to cut a piece to turn on his lathe. This bud vase is red oak finished with bees wax. When hollowing the top, a section broke away and flew across the shop. Glued it back together and sanded. Hard to pick out the issue as it falls right along the dark grain section of the neck.

This shows the grain of the vase.

This is a bit dark but shows the “injury” that was repaired
