Yep, we're at that stage. Well, I so loath this piece that I decided to use my patented move if flinging the piece at hypersonic speeds from the lathe while parting off. Sadly it was not destroyed, it only suffered a blemish which must be repaired, ignored, or I will be forced to consciously dispose of the piece. I far prefer the passive aggressive resolution to a hated piece where I "accidentally" destroy it.
Anyway, here is the blemish. Looks like a bit of a detachment or something.
Thanks for taking a look. Here is a pic of the whole piece as well, just for the record.

See, that does sound fun. But I don't have any guns and I live in the city which would make that difficult. There really ought to be a place you can go and just destroy stuff for a small fee.

No ceremony in my shop. I've been turning 35 years. I don't destroy many, but when it goes badly, it's in the trash. No need wasting time with a fix, especially with expensive resin. I've got lots more wood. I just bought a Solo Stove Firepit, so more fun watching them burn in the future.

One of our former AAW.presidents used to.shoot up pieces on purpose. My mind has gone blank on his name this morning because I talked to him at length on time and even helped.repair a tire on his wheel.chair. he used shotgun pellets as a.texturing tool. How fun is that. He wrote.an article on that for the journal so you can.look it up.
