I checked in on Facebook Woodturning group that I belong to a few days ago and saw an announcement for an August monthly challenge, something about a train wreck and design opportunities. A design opportunity is when you have messed something up and than salvaged it some way. I thought hey this is motivation to do something with that blown up segmented porthole bowl that you keep tripping over in the shop. I can up with a plan for salvaging the piece and turned a bowl. I started looking for the announcement to double check to see if I had satisfied the criteria for the challenge. After searching for a while and finally finding the announcement -IT WAS FOR 2020! Oh well, I no longer have to look at the evidence of my mistake. Paduak and maple, 6.25" in diameter.

Nice save, and one less thing to trip over. :D

Since there was just a recent thread about sanding, I have to ask, how did you finish this without getting padauk in your maple? You could almost use Padauk dust as dye.

I coated it with sanding sealer before sanding. I had some limited staining inside the bowl.
