A heartbreaking night. I continued hollowing the BTA Velvet Mesquite hollow form. Things were progressing nicely but I was really pushing the limits of my tools and before I knew it I had a catastrophic catch. The catch forced the cutting edge away from center which caused the shaft to contact the fragile rim and pieces went flying.

Luckily I was able to locate all of the pieces and it looks like they'll go back together relatively easily. It's still frustrating seeing something damaged that you've worked so hard on and have put significant into.

  1. I always think that when something like this happens at least you weren't hurt!
