I bet flew off with vigor. Did it miss I hope so that could hurt. Is the larger piece salvageable to make something else

I'll bet that made you say "Oh dear me" (or something similar) didn't it?
 
I hope the only bodily damage was to your ego.  Such happenings can be painful as many turners know too well.
 
It look as though it was an interesting piece of wood - perhaps it was faults that made it so?
 
Ah well. on to the next job I suppose.

hi all
 
i must say it wasn't too spectacular when it came apart. it basically slammed into the lathe bed and got stuck! had to switch off quickly cause the motor was still trying to turn.
 
sadly nothing salvageable derek. it's taken me since i posted the photo till now just to come back and look at the picture again. the lack of commentary was because i felt a tiny bit upset at the time.
 
the piece of teak must of been the middle of the tree. the photo doesn't show it clearly, but the middle piece was the pith/core of the tree, which had cracked away from the main part of the trunk. if you look at the left piece, you'll see the round profile of the break.
 
like you say richard, onto the next 'un!
 
thanks for the commiserations lads!
