Turning

Subject:
New one to me!! *PIC*

I just ruined an end grain bulb, ambrosia maple, did not wanted to be cut with a gouge, a scraper? forget it it just did crumble, I did not wanted to reshape my gouge to a blunt angle, so resorted to a #5 Hunter tool, they used o be my tool for finishing touches until I lost my grip on my right hand; started from the center out fine beautiful thin shavings for about 3 inches, then, thack!, a catch and the bowl fell, no it was not dismounted, it just neatly separated a circle... The wood 1/2" thick.
So I still don't have my grip back, but have a new way to ruin a bowl... :D
Next time I will use lots oc CA in the bottom area before I turn...
