These Woody Pear Trees grow in our Kalbarri National Park, therefore protected, but following a trip to see how much of the vegetation was damaged along the main road I saw this tree laying in the gutter and spread out onto the road.
So Dangerous that I went and asked the head Ranger was there any “POSSIBILITY” that I could remove the danger.
He said it would be OKAY so within half an hour I had all my gear packed into the trailer and off I went to save the world.
I JUST LOVE THIS TIMBER.
Obviously this was a crotch with three branches and about 5 inches at it’s thickest.
It’s 13 1/2 inches long, 12 inches across the widest part and is 2 1/2 inches tall.
Sanded both on the lathe and by hand to 320 grit and finished with multiple coats of Kitchen Oil.

Hope you like it and thanks for looking.

C & C Welcome.

That’s a beautiful tray and the wood is outstanding. Big difference than our pear tree lumber.

You could save the country from all the fallen eucalyptus trees too!!...............Cheers, Jim
