Especially Bradford Pear, as in trees since they are:
1) nearly everywhere
2) prone to wind damage and are often then cut down
3) Nearly a perfect wood for green turnings
All of the BP I've turned has been a plesant experience. The wood responds well to tooling and cuts beautifully, is easy to sand while green, can have some interesting figure and, it doesn't seem to warp or distort nearly as much as other woods turned in a green state (and no, a "green state" is not a new political term). I had a nice BP in my front yard that had gotten about 20' tall this year and my wife said she didn't like it because it hid our house too much. So, I was more than willing to yank out the old Pouland Pro and solve that in short order. Here is a small NE bowl I made from a chunk of trunk (4" x 5"). I polished it a little with the Beal but, other than wax, it's nude. Thanks for looking and please feel free to critique.
