"I really love this steamed pear wood for turning bowls and small plates. It is super easy to work with and very easy to shape and get into a nice curved bowl. I have found you can really push how thin you can get the walls of your bowl with this and have done a few that are seriously slim. The grain varies very much from piece to piece but it always gives a really nice unique look with lots of different light brown shades through it. You sometimes hit some really dark or light patches around some of the grain and if you chase these then you can get a really beautiful effect from it I have found that a high gloss finish brings the best out of the wood and have started using a coat or two of cheap friction polish as a sealer and to start getting a shiny layer then using Hampshire Sheen high gloss over it to give a fantastic hard high gloss glassy finish. Some of my best bowls have been made from this with that finish and they look fantastic if I do say so myself. It is not cheap but it is a fairly unique wood to work with and the finished pieces be it for sale or for gifting etc are well worth it. Give it a try!"
