Pear wood is resilient and hard and perfect for woodturning. I bought this trunk which was situated near the place where I used to live 15 years ago. Tho wood is 90 years old and healthy. As you can see I cut it into a few different pieces for various projects. The whole log 230 cm was split into two pieces. The longer one is 130 cm by 50 cm. I will have some tim to think what to do with it. The texture is not so distinctive but the wood has fine shades of yellow, brown and white. In two years we will see.
