Wormy ?wood vase

I bought a chunk of this wood back in January. Made this vase with it. Anyone know what kind of wood it is? It didn't cut, it tore while cutting it. Even with the sharpened tools. It looked furry after it was roughed.

I'm glad someone else thought it was Chestnut because that was my first impression also. It's very light weight, and it does want to fuzz up on you when turning. I would call it Wormy Chestnut. :)

That's a neat looking piece Slick. My first thought was chestnut too. But in my case, just a somewhat lucky guess.

Yep! From the pictures it sure looks like wormy chestnut, with the finish and without. I have some wormy chestnut but I've never turned any. What small amount I have I've held onto it. You know,they're not making that stuff anymore.Perhaps one day I'll turn some of it?
