I had my time at the chimney cut short when the rain blew into the porch and the area I was working!
I was stopped in my tracks at the lathe when a crack developed and blew the bowl off the lathe. I tried to seal it with CA glue and hold it with a vise grip but it immediately opened up again when mounted on the lathe. It will go on a back burner while I think about a remedy.
I gave into the flow of the day like the cats and sat and watched YouTube and made a sock.....ahhh, like coming into a safe harbor after a storm!
