stay out of the line of fire

>I know it's been said before but when turning wood stay out of the line of fire if at all possible. I was roughing out an elm bowl about 13" in diameter and a large chunk of it blew out. Flew 18 feet across the shop and would have done a good job on my face. I know I could use a nose job but don't really want to do it this way.
