Day 100: Oops

I decided to turn another small piece of olive tonight.  it was going to be a nice thin hollow form that I was going to let warp.  And then disaster struck.  I set my laser to the proper thickness but I set it for the 10 o'clock position on the scraper but used the 7 o'clock position to clean up the side wall and without a way to tell the thickness I cut through the side.

Unfortunately this piece had some burl figure to it, fortunately it was all sap wood so it wasn't a huge loss.
