I Made Art
A very nice piece of something spalted, I think oak.  I turned the outside months ago.  Today I got the inside turned and got about 80% of the sanding done, I only had to turn off the tenon on bottom and sand about a 5" diameter circle around where the tenon was.  Just about the time I am thinking I should leave a foot in case the bottom is too thin, I turn through the center of the bottom.  After investigating, it is really too thin for about 5 or 6".  I am going to see if some 3/4 walnut is thick enough for me to turn out the entire bottom, then glue in the walnut.  I will have to plan for a tenon to turn it around again and redo the inside.  It's too nice to waste the rest of it.
