Here's my solution for broken / turned too thin bowls. Saw into pieces, add a back and you have a cool knick knack shelf.

Last weekend, I begged a few lengths of fresh red alder from an arborist working the neighbourhood. I really like turning wet wood and especially red alder as the sap turns red as it dries, which intensifies the grain somewhat. Inside one of the pieces I found this goblet, but the log wouldn't let it go. Oven-dried the same day, 6 hours at 170F

I've only used the oven drying for completed works so truing up is not an option as the wall thickness was maybe 3/16" no more. Thanks for the reply and input nonetheless. There are many people out here willing to help that I know for sure. Take good care Gord

African Blackwood and Padauk, the candle stick/goblet waa turned complete with a 40mm straight 18mm diameter section in the middle, then parted off in the middle, The Padauk was then bored with a forstner bit and rounded, after that i mounted the base back in the chuck and added the padauk and top gluing the tenons inside the padauk with gorilla wood glue using the tailstock and large conical piece of wood to make sure the goblet was glued straight.

The next day I turned the padauk flush with the african blackwood, sanded from 120 to 400 grit and finished with..
2 coats sanding sealer
2 coats of own made abrasive paste
4 coats of chestnut woodwax 22.

The best quality work I have done so far ;) as you can see from slight dust inside the goblet I do need good dust management !

I don't remember whether I posted here before. This was a crotch of hawthorn I rough turned back in July. Unfortunately it had started to crack, despite being packed in a brown paper bag and wet shavings. I re-mounted it at the weekend to finish it off. It's not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but I did not want to keep cutting in case it gave up.
Finish is polyurethane lacquer.

As I'm into recycling I had to have a go at this plywood bowl. Didn't turn out too bad and was an easy turn. Glued this morning with Tarzans grip ultra bond and turned this afternoon. Happy days.

A chistmas present for my Mum, the flat disc is for a not so hidden secret compartment that I am going to stick a poem I will write for her into.

The Bowl is Utile ( I think about 90% sure as I can't find my utile bowl blank in the pile :) )
The Knob is African Blackwood with a Padauk insert.
I don't know what wood the disc is from, the secret compartment was an after thought as I was hollowing out the box and didn't have enough on the box to part the box off and use the same wood, I found a short plank about 30mm thick and 100mm wide to make the disc from.

Hey. I am trying to come up with some ideas for the types of wood I should use to create some trophies for my states DECA competition. Last year's trophies (as seen in the picture) I used Alaskan Birch and Black Walnut because I think they compliment each other very well, the gold and dark brown, plus it was pretty Alaskany, if you know what I mean. Anyway, I was just wondering if you guys had any suggestions for some good woods that really compliment each other. The design will be a little bit different, but I am just looking for suggestions for woods. I have till March to make them (16 trophies). Thanks.

How about something from the WebbWood range? https://webbwood.com You could use a natural wood for the main body to keep costs down, and something spectacular for the base. The phenol-impregnated varieties shine up really well without any polish or varnish. I imagine even the plain black would look good, and it is very dense, so it would add a quality feel to the trophies.
