I took our turning clubs advanced hollowing class a couple of weeks ago at the local vo-tech. This piece is the result of that class. It’s from a piece of pecan that had several woodpecker holes in it and also a bunch of worm holes. After clearing out the worm poop some of the holes went through and I think it all adds a bit of character to the piece. It measures 3 3/4” tall by 3 1/2” wide. Finished with Mylands. I’m very pleased with how this piece turned out.

Nice looking piece. It must have been dry for while. The worm holes give it character like you find in dry mesquite. Do you find Pecan wood locally in Ok? I had found it in Arizona, too.
It is surprise when you hit a live worm in the turning. It will mess up your glasses!
