Object-Bowl Yew

A heavy splitted piece of a century-old Yew tree found its way in my shop. But i was afraid it could be blown while turning, especially while turning the inside. So i tried to stabilize it with Gaffertape and that worked 🙂 You can see the splits as dark lines through the whole piece.
