>>>When we learned the hollowing thru the bottom technique, after gluing the plug back in, we cut two accent lines, one on the glue line to hide it, the other just because... Looked like it was meant to be, no one asked, no-one told...

I've used the accent line method to disguise joins. In this case I decided against it. Some of the people I showed it to couldn't see the join even when I pointed it out.

Also, it might have been difficult to cut a perfectly concentric circle on the bottom due to the way I hold something long with a central hole like this for reversing - turn a cylinder for a jam chuck. It's quick and easy but without a lot of effort the end can wobble a bit which usually doesn't matter much for a quick cleanup on a simple, slightly convex bottom like this.
