I would like to see the lumber itself when you saw it. These trees are everywhere here but I don't think I have ever seen any lumber from one.

Nice find. I had a 15 inch diameter Bradford Pear split in half last year in a big storm here. So far, I've only made a few bowls with it, but it beat my expectations and some of the wood near the base of the trunk came out pretty rich in color.

I hate idiots (like Dusty56) that only want to cause trouble. Dusty56, if you don't like what's posted, then don't open it, and don't comment on it-Then the problem would be solved for you. For the rest of us who don't mind, cool score on the wood, Brian. Can't wait to see what you make with it!

Cool score, here in Northern California Bradford Pear is highly sought after, when slabbed it is sold as European Pear, or sometimes as Swiss Pear. It makes beautiful cabinets and is lusted after by carvers, for its dense even grain. Great score and ignore the nay sayers. I spend a lot of time slabbing logs as saving them from the firewood or compost shredders as well and can appreciate the work and effort required.

Wow, who would have thought Bradford pair would be sought after. From the looks of it, I've got a log about 2-3' longer and about 1.5 times the diameter beside my house. I have yet to gain access to a chainsaw large enough to cut it down. The rest of the tree went about 3 weeks ago. The tree is over 25 years old.

YO!!

For those of you that jumped on Dusty56's Comments. He's NOT the IDIOT here! At least he can read. Why is…."YES. This IS a FINISHED Woodworking Project" that you MUST click on to post in "Projects" so hard to understand?? Providing you can read of course.

The finish appears to be a dry cambium layer.

Dusty, if you don't have anything good to say, don't say anything at all. Even Walt Disney got that one down.

Rick, read your own sig!

Sheesh.
