    Pear wood

    I was given so pear wood by friends - 'Could you make a pen out of this?'
    From this

    I'm off to visit them soon & I know they have a good supply of pear so I'm going to blag some!

    Regards

    Thanks all, bit of a learning experience. A it was not the usual square blank I'm used to and don't have a bandsaw or table saw to make it so, I eyeballed the centres and rough turned it round so I could drill the halves.pear2 (1 of 1).jpgpear3 (1 of 1).jpg

    A nice pen and a nice windfall Tony.

    You used to be able to buy steamed pear wood but I've not seen any recently. The steaming makes it more pink. I've not tried it but I've always wondered what would happen if I steamed a piece in a cooking steamer (apart from annoying my wife, obviously)
