Nature is Rarely Perfect ~ The Fix

 Well, here's the area that needed fixing in the
last post. What do you think?
This is a Walnut Bowl almost 12" across
by 3" in height. There is a food safe finish

Nature is Rarely Perfect

 What you see here is a "patch job" because Nature ain't
always perfect ... no matter what some people might try
to tell you ... huh Algore.

I use my own recipe to fix cracks that appear in knots, as
in this case. I always save saw dust from each bowl as I'm
working. I mix that with my wood glue and it makes a great,
strong filler. It is, for the most part, undetectable.
 As you can see, I'm about half done on the inside.
Because of so many things going on in the 
Dust'n Lint household, this project must be
postponed. It will also give that "patch job"
a chance to dry. 

I cover this with a plastic bag so moisture
doesn't escape too quickly. In a not so
perfect world, that could cause another crack.
