    When you turn the hole larger in the bowl try doing a small taper and then also taper the plug this will in effect give a larger glue area. Also don't forget to leave enough on the plug to turn a tenon so that the inside can be tided up before removing the tenon

    I can't do a set up at the moment as I am ripping my workshop to pieces ready for the new one

    Some of the guys in our club make an elongated finial that the bowl fits over about a quarter of the way down and glue them together. Makes them look a little like a cross between a Christmas ornament and a hanging mushroom. It then gets put out in the garden hanging from a tree or hook under the soffit. One paints them bright colours and hangs them high in trees above hiking trails near his cabin.

    Well what can I say?

    I decided to make a feature of the hole.
    Went for Oak as a plug with a small taper on it so it would fill the hole flush.
    Cleaned and made the hole larger.
    Plugged it using CA medium glue to secure it.
    Turned the inside and managed to make a 1mm gap around part of the edge.
    Tried filling the hole with CA and wood shavings to colour match.
    Sanded the inside to get it silky smooth.
    Stared in disbelief as the plug fell out.
    Turned out the light and locked the shed for the day.

    So I still have the same problem except the hole is now twice as big as it was before I started.

    I have taken loads of photo's with a step by step guide as to what I did but cannot find the lead to transfer them from camera to PC, ordered one from eBay so should be with me by the weekend and I will post them all here.

    Have you tried turning it into a bangle
    Sorry I couldn't resist....
    TBF I think we have all had days/weeks like that and NO it's not like falling of a bike, "you've just got to get back on" neither is smashing it into a wall!!..... What I tend to do is put it in a cardboard box and put it on a cupboard or under the bench and turn something else. In a couple of weeks you will probably trip over the box or it fall on your head, then it will be time to have another crack at it.... Or just bin it
    I only open my mouth...to change feet...

    Gary CA glue would not be my first choice of an adhesive for this application, I think that many seem to think it is just easy to use it instead of waiting for other types of glue to dry even hot melt is not a glue I would use for this job(It does have it's uses)

    A nice fit is needed when doing the plug so that the glue does not have to fill gaps. Like many things it is a learning curve do not be put off by it pick up the next piece of wood and throw it on the lathe.
