Serious, open crack in the end grain of a turned cherry bowl. After the damage, the bowl stood for some years, as environmental fluctuations caused the crack to slowly open. At this point serious force was necessary to close the crack. Furthermore, it had to be applied evenly so the bowl was not distorted and the crack closed evenly. A hole was cut out in a piece of 1″ honeycomb craft board, and the bowl was pressed in with a shore to the ceiling.
