  1. Woodland Speaker

    This chunk of Bradford pear was going to become a small live edge bowl but instead I decided a turn a live edge passive loudspeaker as a quickie Christmas present. The cone was turned on the lathe. The slot on the top was drilled with forstner bits and chiseled smooth. The whole thing was...
  2. Bradford Pear

    This wood came from the wind storm a while back. It is a Bradford Pear that came down in a church family's yard. The lady really loved that tree so this is going to be a slight rememberance for her. I'm planning on giving it 'back' to her tomorrow night. It is about 8" around at the rim and...
  3. Bradford Pear shelf

    I built a small shelf for my son out of some old Bradford Pear. The wood has a little history: ten years ago when my son was 16 he did a lot of wood turning and collected wood where ever he could. Apparently he found some Pear wood somewhere and, as luck would have, totaled our minivan on the...
  4. Farie Cottage

    Was digging through the woodpile and decided to make a farie cottage. Used a small hickory limb for the cottage trunk and bradford pear bark for the roof. Very relaxing to make, no rules, and it can become whatever your imagination spits out. Put it in our Etsy shop. We'll see what happens...
  5. Few New Bowls

    Turning bowls for inventory so I thought I would post a few. Spalted walnut x 2, spalted flame box elder 2 pics, spalted Bradford Pear teacup, Bradford pear.
  6. Liquid Wood

    I was experimenting while trying a technique I saw Mike Peace do where he turned a bowl using a 4"x10" piece of wood and while shaping the flat "bowl" a small rounded ridge formed that looked just a like a ripple in water so I decided to finish the entire surface with ripples to make it look...
  7. Small turned Boxes

    These are three turned boxes that I recently made out of a scrap piece of black walnut and a piece of Bradford pear limb. The Tallest is only about 2 3/4" - 3" tall to give you a size perspective. I have always looked at doing bigger bowls and boxes but neighbor asked if I can do small boxes...
  8. Spalted Bradford Pear Lidded Bowl

    I had a 4 foot log of Bradford pear laying in the yard for over a year. I cut it and found this. It is beautifully spalted and still hard as a rock. Gave this one a cherry finial to finish it off.
  9. Bradford Pear Natural Edged Bowl

    I have been turning for about 4 months when I decided I needed to turn a natural edged bowl. I had some fresh Bradford Pear and gave it a whirl. There is a ebonized walnut foot on it. I just thought for some reason it added balance to the wide top. It is 7 inches wide, by 3 inches tall. It has...
  10. Bradford Pear Bowl

    I was getting blanks out of the kiln and this one was on top so in it came. The shape came mainly from trying to turn checks out but when I saw how it was shaping up I kept going to enhance the design. I liked what I had but it needed something so I burned a couple of lines just to break up the...
  11. N.S.R. Mallet

    (No Skills Required) Mallet with Bradford Pear head and Maple (dowel) handle. Wipe on poly finish. I made two of these while I was at it and it all took a couple of hours. The pear wood is suitably hard and heavy. Thanks for looking.
  12. Ready for a Beer II -- Ringmaster Edition

    This was my woodworking item for the 2019 Beer Swap. I made them for LJ Steve . I decided to use my Ringmaster to make a can koozie and made a simple prototype using Douglas Fir that I re-sawed from a 4×4 with a bradford pear rim (4th and 5th picture, right koozie). The quarter sawn vertical...
  13. Small Basket Illusion Bowl

    I've seen a few of these posted here on LJ and have also seen a few YouTube demos on how to make them so I decided to give it a try. I had a small rough turned bradford pear bowl drying in a bag of shavings that was ready to use so decide to start with that. I finished turning the bowl and then...
  14. Bradford Pear Scalloped Edge Vase

    There is a woodturner in my local club named Charles Farrar, he is famous for his scalloped edged bowls. I really like his designs and I felt the need to give it a try, but my version. This is turned and then hand carved, it took a really long time to do this by hand. Sandpaper was my friend on...
  15. Turnscrew set and box

    This is a set of turnscrews I made, based off London Pattern Turnscrews from an old Marples catalog. Then I tweaked them to match turnscrews sold by Swan early in the 20th Century. They are sized to fit wood screws of even sizes from 2-8. I cut the blades from O-1 tool steel, filed the tips to...
  16. Misc Turned Firewood 2020

    I thought that I would finally post some of the things I have turned over the last year or so. These are some of my favorites. I'm always looking for interesting things to try or sometimes it just evolves based upon the chunk of firewood I mount on the lathe. 1: Spalted Sycamore bowls a...
  17. Pear and Cherry Lidded Bowl

    This bowl is made from a small section of Bradford Pear log from middle TN and a piece of Cherry grown in central FL. The cherry lid will likely darken with age more than the pear will, thus producing a contrast with the bowl. The pear shaped finial is made of Walnut but, just to be clear, is...
  18. 4-Axis Wera Style Screwdriver

    After experimenting with several shapes for screwdriver handles, I finally settled on one that resembles the Wera screwdrivers. This was pretty easy to do by simply marking the proportions with a piece of tape on the tool rest where the lobes needed to be. I made one for a gift to a friend...
  19. Tiger Eye Bradford Pear Jar

    This is the item I made for the Turning box Swap2020 and sent to LJ stripit. This is my first true hollow form not made using the Ringmaster or bowl from a board technique. This is made from a piece of green Bradford pear found on someones trash pile waiting for pickup. When cutting the...
  20. Orbsession

    I decided to try turning a couple of spheres and got a little obsessed with trying different woods and epoxy inlays. 1) Bois d'arc (osage orange) with brass powder inlay 2) Spalted sugarberry (aka southern hackberry) 3) Spalted red oak. It has a big black hole through the middle 4) Bradford...
