It seems like I have an abundance of pecan wood to turn and it is not very big in diameter so I made another vase for the upcoming craft show. The dark lines in this wood really get accentuated around curved surfaces. I made this by turning a branch between centers and then turning a spiggot on both ends and parting it with a thin parting tool. I bored the center first and turned the outside to it. Then I chucked up the short piece and turned a lid to fit. It is finished with EEE polish and Shellawax.
This was gift to Tim and Jan Olexa.
