Pear Bowl

Introduction: Pear Bowl

About: Come spend some time in the shop. I'm a hobbyist woodworker and professional computer geek in Northern California. I guess my projects will vary widely, and I have no clue what I plan to make next...

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

    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!
