Hello & a question

Dave H
>My WoodCentral hat and t-shirt arrived so I figured I better introduce myself. As long as I'm at it I also have a question.

I'm Dave H. I live in NE Wisconsin (Go Pack!). I've been turning on & off since early 2000. Had to take 2 years off while we built a new house, sold our old house, took on a major initiative at work, etc. Finally have the shop set up again and loving turning again. From what I've seen of the pics posted here, I have a long way to go. I'm in awe of what many of you are capable of.

My question is this. I have a piece of spalted hard maple I turned into a bowl. A dozen small worm holes appeared when the turning was finished. What do most of you do with the holes? Do you fill prior to finishing or leave them open?
