My folks just cut down their pear tree. They were going to take it to there cabin for fire wood but I seized it and have brought it home. (I knew it was a hardwood that might make something beautiful.)
So now I have this 7’ trunk in my shop. It tapers from 7”-5” in diameter. And I don’t know what to do with it.
I can’t call myself a woodworker. I have built a set of stairs for my balcony and made some basic 4X4 cedar posts for a glass railing for the same balcony. I have a few tools (chops saw, circular saw, router, jig saw, multi-tool, etc.) and I would love to continue to work with wood. I found my first couple projects hugely satisfying and would like to do some more ‘finished’ work now.
What do I do with this tree truck to preserve the wood and prepare it for a project?
What can I do with this wood?
Thank-you for any help and guidance
