This bowl was planned to be just a plain jane Walnut bowl. But as you can see in the fifth photo, a design change was needed :)

So I flattened the lip and bottom of the Walnut bowl and added two pieces of Myrtle. It came out really well. The bottom might be a touch on the thick side, no prizes for guessing as to why :D

The “repair” cost me 3 hours, and really it is just three slabs of timber glued together and then turned into a bowl…a lesson for the future.

It is finished with Sanding sealer → EEE Ultra-shine → Shellawax.

The making of the bowl can be viewed on youtube

Any comments or criticisms are welcome. I am new to turning so my technique might look a little funky

Wow. Considering the “accident” pic, that is one heck of a repair job. Bowl came out beautiful. Good job!

Some of my favorite bowls came after “accidents”, sometimes that’s where the artist in you kicks in, beautiful bowl, nice job!

Thanks guys. I find that nothing increases my skill set quicker than a mistake, except maybe a mistake in a piece of timber which has sentimental value to the client.
