This is a small hunk of pear crotch with a large crack and exposed bark. The wood was from a co-workers fallen pear tree. I took the whole thing and will have pear projects for many moons.

The green wood was rough turned in July, it has dried enough for a final turning.

Totally size was about 7" or so. Finished with shellac
I would think the split in the wood would catch the blade and cause lots of problems <br>
it can, you have to really be careful around that part and take light cuts.
Awesome work. A lathe is the one tool my shop is missing.
Thank you. My lathe is the main reason I can't get anything else done in the shop!
