This is a large spalted pecan crotch krater I turned from a huge pecan tree. The patton is a piece from a huge live oak burl I found . I put the two together for I thought the krater needed a bottom to cap the large krater off. The height is 30” by 12”. I did not use a finish I polished the finish with a buffing wheel then used a polishing wax to seal it. I did this because the pecan usually absorbs the lacquer turning it a yellowish color which would not enhance the wood . All this and Heaven too.
