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.

Great job on the turning. Never saw spalted pear before. I have some flowering pear logs but they all look clean. Yours is awesome.
