This is a Pecan turned/carved hollow form. Pecan has two layers to it’s bark, the crusty chunky layer that you can flake off, and a much harder, darker and more solid layer, which is what I smoothed out on the natural edge rim. It has 5 claws altogether. It’s about 5.5” tall, and 8.5” diameter.

That is cool. You and Little Paw are master “claw carvers”. Check out his “feather box”.

Wow. You are skilled as a turner and a carver.
That thing looks like it’s going to scuttle off at any second.
