Hi all,

Hope everyone is well.

After a heavy workload and some cold weather, I have finally found some time to get back in the shed. Thought I would warm up by finishing a small ash bowl I roughed out last year and also try my hand at power sanding. Glad the sanding revealed the following as opposed to another pass with my scraper: #-o



Rescue plan is now in position using some mahogany rescued from a skip AND someones firewood pile to create an insert and foot (old heavy window sills that finish lovely, the things people throw away)

Every mistake creates a new learning process so its all good

Simon

It's always a choker when you have put so much work into it already. I made a little yew suction fit box the other day, sanded, polished, parted off lid and box....I knew I had gone a bit thin on the bottom, but I thought I'd got away with it, and the finish was the best I had managed yet. I put the lid on, gave it a push on the bottom with my thumb to snap the lid into place and...it went throught the bottom. Gutted. I should really start believing my depth gauge.

That happened to me two weeks ago. Unfortunately my 12 x 4 spalted beech blank couldn't be rescued after it was splattered against two walls and the tool rest.
