hollow wable *PIC*

ryker acuna
>Heres my first HF with a big inclusion and a natural hole in top. I left it to long on the lathe and it wobbled so I tried to correct it but it didnt work. One side is 3/8 thick, the other 3/16 thick. Also the bark on the top broke off a little bit. Alcohol dried it hoping it might help. Here the Question- Should I try and rechuck and even out the sides or let it be and power sand aggressively and chalk it up to experience? Second should I leave the top with the bark off or sand and smooth part of the rim to make it look more finished? What like to hear comments. OH ya how do I rechuck this thing to sand or turn it with the natural edge on top? Neptune1
