Pear Block Pr452
3.8" x 3.8" x 8.8"
3.3 lbs.

This is a hefty end-grain block of Bartlett Pear wood. The color is a pinkish-brown with lighter colored mottling and some light spalting. This block has subtle, attractive grain patterns, which includes darker streaks and knots. It is lightly spalted with "white rot" style spalting. Most of these pieces also have a bit of black-line spalting.

This wood has been carefully air-dried to 10-12% moisture content. There are some drying cracks present that we recommend you fill with CA glue prior to or during turning. See photos for close-ups on the cracks in this block. There is a knot at mid-block on the annotated face. It will need extra attention with CA glue during turning. We recommend this piece for an experienced turner.

Pear wood typically has a fine and even grain pattern, which can result in a smooth and attractive surface when turned. This fine grain allows for intricate details and clean cuts. It is delightful to turn!
