I'm working a pecan bowl blank that I roughed out a couple months ago. The blank is now dry enough for the final turning phase. Man that stuff is hard! Lots of extra trips to the grinder. I'm also having a lot of trouble with tear out. I think it will be nice when finished, but it is beginning to test my patience.

Anybody else doing some final turning on this wood?

Doug, yours and Richards are the same tree. I got pretty beat up turning that sucker when it was wet. What tool are you using for the finishing cuts?
