« Part 38: Honduran Rosewood Burl Pen Part 39 of Journey into Woodturning series Part 40: One-piece YoYo - from Etimoe »

This project had a great plan laid out. Light colored wood for the bottom and a darker piece for the top. Purpleheart rim will provide a great contrast and is a much harder wood then maple. The plan was in place.

I went a little deeper than normal on the mortise and even deeper still by burning the circles around the logo. As I cleared out the inside, I thought I was about as deep as I should go. Grabbed Christmas gift scrapper and BAM! Got a catch, which ripped out the bottom of the bowl. Nice or fairly clean circular pop of the bottom, thanks to those burnt circles.

My first true funnel. I grabbed a square of etimoe. Made it round and plugged the hole. It actually looks better, in my humble opinion.

Funnel aside, the project turned out great. I already allocated this project as a gift to someone (not the wife), which the wife was not all to happy about. LOL
