Well I was half way thru this week's Wednesday's... and everything just disappeared
Hope my computer doesn't have the Corona Beer Virus.

Rick Turns posted his February list of YouTube turning videos-
Work continued on the hollow vessel failure from last week. I figures a way to remount the piece using the spigot jaws in the hollowing access hole.
Then turned away the old recess and formed a tenon.
Worked on the outside a bit to refine the slightly off axis piece-
Filled the gaps around the knot with thick black StarBond CA.
Reversed the piece using the spigot jaws again and removed the teneo-
To remove the nub, a little nylon strapping tape for safety-
And decorate the bottom-
Still undecided about a lid, a finial or just the hole???
