I appreciate both the useful and not quite as useful responses.

Bill, thanks for the advice. I think I’m going to use #1 and #2 as learning experiences. I’m going to let #1 sit for a while and let it do what it’s going to do, and then I’ll use some epoxy, maybe with a contrasting color, and see how that works out. With #2, I’ll epoxy the crack, maybe try a dowel for the heck of it. #3, I’m just going to turn the inside and finish if it seems stable.

Jerry, that video is an eye opener for me. He put quite a lot of work into that bowl, and the size and the beautiful grain probably made it worth it. If I get into that situation with a unique piece of wood, I can see putting in the extra time. I’m going to use a dowel or two on #2 just for the learning experience. Was Thornhill spraying with shellac and then rubbing in CA? I couldn’t tell exactly what he was doing.
