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. :)

Very nice, that would had been very disappointing if it cracked when it went flying.

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.
