no previous part Part 1 of Turning Giant Pecan Bowl series Part 2: Getting it on the lathe »

We cut a large pecan tree down for a customer back in November so that he can expand his business. We brushed out the limbs, but he kept the wood because he has lots of buddies that have fireplaces and smoke meat. I took some of the wood I wanted to make bowls out of. The first picture is of my guys standing on the trunk. they wanted it left tall so the excavator could work the root ball out using the leverage
