Wood Turning

Pecan Bowl

This came from the crotch of a pecan tree. While I was turning it I noticed the tool was hitting some moisture. I stopped the lathe and found a huge worm still alive. I dug it out and gave it to the birds. When I tried to finish the bottom of the bowl I move the tail stock back and had the speed low but it ended up flying off and hit me just above my left eye. Needless to say it left a mark and I found my glasses about 10 minutes later. 🙂 It weighs in at a good 5 lbs or more.
