Aaaaaaand another podlet today, had to go a lot slower than usual as this piece has dried out a bit at the end I used and was a little punky so took a very gentle touch and left the top a little thicker than I would have liked but overall I'm happy with it, only sanded it to 80g as I like these to have a little texture to them.

Made 2 creations and 1 jigsaw puzzle today, a spalted sycamore bowl, outside finished with hardware, inside and rim with walnut oil. Decided to then turn a podlet from silver birch but just as I was finishing the base my tool rest came loos and smashed into the top shattering it 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬 once I calmed down I took a piece of willow and made a podlet from that, the bark flew off but the little points from branches that never got to grow are still in place and make it look really cool, I sanded it at 80g only and have left it unfinished for now, once it dries I'll add an oil finish.

Really wanted to make a willow podlet complete with bark edge so I put another piece on and once I had the inside done I wrapped the end in tape to see if that would hold it in place and I'm very happy to say it worked perfectly followed by nervously removing the tape hoping the bark didn't come off with it.

Do you squirt a bit of ultra liquid ca glue around bark line while you turn? I find it will hold bark on a lot better then just hoping it holds?

I have considered that but worry how the glue will affect the warping as it dries and dont want it to run and stain the wood, although willow seems to want to split rather than warp. Have noticed that even when fairly thick (5mm) it allows quite a lot of light through it, could make a decent lampshade 🤪
