Decided to try another goblet, this is one from Bradford pear tree. Must be a timex, flew off the lathe before anticipated when parting off, but hey, it still survived. :)

Really looks good. Glad you posted it as the bradford pear trees in my neighborhood are all self destructing, been trying to decide if I should keep some of the wood. Look like I will plan to now.

The bradford pear turned real nice, has a kinda sweet smell to it and turns really easy. I had no problems with tear out with this piece at all.

Pear is a wonderful turning wood….hard to find pieces big enough….but when you do…snatch them up….it will hardly ever check when drying…and it is very stable. I turn alot of the smaller pieces for tool handles as the wood is very hard and durable and it doesn’t tend to split as much as most woods
That is a beautiful turning….nicely shaped and perfect thickness on the wall.
