Woodturners get inspiration in a number of ways.  In this case, Chris Light was turning some wood when a large woodworm flew out and smacked in him the forehead.  After regaining his senses, he chased more worms through the wood that were trying to hide.

Collection by Chris Light

Below, a 7"h x 6"w red dyed pine vessel and a 8"h x 5"w dark dyed pine form with groved texturing.

Above left, looking straight on, is Chris's inspiration from this experience, a wooden lathe replica turning wormy wood, with an angry woodworm on the attack  Above right, a side view of the angry woodworm.   All from turned wood.
