Maple Pear

Pat Taylor
>My wife has a thing for fruit in artwork. Pears in particular. Tonight I took a stab at turning a pear from maple. The stem is turned from oak and sanded to a "rustic" shape. Here's the catch: with no dry wood on-hand, I used wet maple. I can't say my wife was happy when I told her to keep it in a paper bag for 2 months.

Comments please....
