Well, that was not exactly the first word I said. Had great hopes for the pattern and the crack was on the bottom to be filled later. That was not the cause of the blow out.

Stilll not sure how I did this but I think the jig slipped or raised slightly and the bearing rode in under it. In any case I consider it fortunate that the whole thing didn't come apart on me. At least I live to route another day.

Ouch. Glad no one was hurt. That does suck when a project goes awry close to the end.

I can see this would have been pretty spectacular. I assume you'll make it again. Well worth the effort.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

What a shame...beautiful piece. Cut the whole top off on all sides to match the "design character"...then glue in another top, say walnut, and start again...that'll save all the segment work, I think...

GO into Save Mode, Jon and see if you can come up with a way to fill it back it.
Do you have any scrap with the same pattern,or one with a similar pattern you can cut out the ruined piece and fill back in with a new piece?
Maybe glue a handle on there?
Maybe saw that whole side off and move it in making a small one?
Is this a box or a bowl?

Appreciate all the comments and possible " fixes".
These were the last blocks from previous cutting board designs that I thought would make a nice shallow catch all bowl for keys, loose change etc. For now it will sit on the shelf until I come up with a new design to finish it.

I would have liked to see the finished object, as I am sure you would have too. It is a very nice idea.
It always scares me to rout an object that you can not see the cut.
I assume you were cutting this one up side down? is that right.
Question: Was this in multiple cuts or one run?
A while back, I made a high chair for my great grand daughter and when I made the tray. I cut it with a hand held router.
I used the uncut portion to balance the router on until I got too close to the edge, then I clamped a scrap piece next to the uncut side and used it to balance the router.
I believe I posted pictures of it before, but I'll try to find them.

Sorry, it says the pictures are too big, I'll have to get Sandra to down size them or something.
Unless one of you guys knows how to do this.
