Staved Vessel

I’ve uploaded pics of my most recent woodworking project, a saved staved vessel.  It was the project for a woodturning class Santina got me for my birthday.  While working on the inside I kind of moved the tool straight when I should have been moving it at an angle.  As a result I went through the side of the vessel–and on a lathe that means a cut all the way around!  For a while it looked like I’d have a lampshade and a coaster!  Fortunately the instructor, Steve Pruitt, is very skilled and quite ingenious, and came up with a plan for saving the vessel.  Yay Steve!  The results can be found here, though one pic is shown below.
