This is the last of my large logs it start of 18" x 7" but it had quite a large crack right across it as you can seen so it ended up being 12" x 6" and some of the crack is still there and filled in I had to make it with a spigot instead of a dovetail just to make sure it didn't split right in half I will finish it in the morning

Made with my new Versa chuck it is a very good bit of equipment and I would recommend it

Hi Woody

That looks the business. Was the burr initially held via a screw chuck? Also did you feed the crack with Cyanoacrylate?

Would, a large pinchuck 25mm X 75mm work for the initial external shaping?

Finally, you may be pleased to know I placed an order for the Maxi yesterday, delivery is late Feb. Those nice men in China are putting it together.

Kind regards

Hi Aden30mm

It is to big to hold with a screw or pin chuck so I flattened out the middle on the bark side and fixed a faceplate ring to do the outside the crack was a very old one and it was full so I poured a load of CA glue in it

Good to hear you have ordered your new lathe if you get fed up waiting for it feel free to pop over and use mine

I really like the bowl, especially the finish... but I think the split detracts from the bowl slightly, but that's just me :)

Cracking turning Woody. I like the split, it shows to me that you overcame a potential show stopper of a defect and turned something that has inherent beauty (well to me).

Kind regards
