During my work experience week in a timber yard/woodworking shop, a delivery came with bags full of these nuts (when I opened the first bag I thought they looked rather like hedgehogs for a moment). I had to move the nuts from the bags to a cardboard container so they could go into the shop. What I underestimated was how much mess they would produce!

After my week had finished, I decided to purchase one of the nuts and have ago at turning it.

Very cool! How did you mount it on the lathe?

Beautiful vase! Great turning on that hard and dangerous material.
