    Actually I hadn't hit it with paper yet. I was still in the shaping process. I was Epoxying in a button of Tagua nut in the end. I had it in and decided to give it another couple taps with the wood mallet. FAIL!!

    4 hours of work down the drain.

    I think my hole for the button was too deep, and to much taper on the button. And of course to many taps with the mallet.

    I'm hoping to Frankenstein a piece of something in place, on the diagonal. We'll see how it works out.

    Sorry to see that happen. It looked like it would have been nice once completed.

    A piece of unknown burl. Cut and sanded the two pieces flat. Using Titebond iii wood glue. I'll trim down the excess burl after its dry. Then back on the lathe to see if I can save this piece.

    Oh boy, sorry to see that happen to you. Know the feeling and frustration that can cause. Sounds like you have a plan the piece though. Good luck.

    Prolly will turn out cool! I think you could have used a bigger piece of burl to glue to it, though!
