Sad to know. Including and especially after all the hours.

Wasn't meant to be. Move on. Some you win, others be damned. Hopefully you were wearing face protection when it came flying apart.

One bad turning in comparison to many others that did work out is small potatoes. Luck of the draw.



Cheers,

RR

Arky,
A darn shame that happened. But you never know, might not be your fault at all. Could have been a knot in the wood. That's why I suggest you wear not only safety glasses but also a full flip up/down face shield.
Your next piece will be perfect.... cheers cheers



KEEP ON PUFFING!!!

Arky, years ago when I started making custom fixed blade knives I can't tell you how many billets I ruined. Practice makes perfect, just be careful, look for large knots in the piece of wood your working with. One day you have the capability to be a Master of your craft. Takes time so have patience. Also, it's about having fun and enjoying what you do!!
