I had my pear tree 'adjusted' a few years ago and kept some of the
thicker branches 3" - 4" in the hope to make some small mementoes out of
the wood. Stuff like a small picture frame.
Every spring that tree says hello in a big way, and most years bears
lots of fruit, which one year was distilled into a pear
brandy..well..that's another story.
I like that tree. To make something out of that wood is purely for
sentimental reasons, with the emphasis on mental. "This picture frame,
is made from the tree under which the children played."
I left the bark on the stumps (stumpettes, as they're not very big)
and after 3 years in a dry basement, I'm sure they're as dry as they're
ever going to be.
What can I expect? Firewood, toothpicks? Or is there a chance I might be
able to use it?
You see, to do this, I'd need a band saw, eh? I mean..like really 'need'
I swear I googled, nothing straight-forward pops up. I know it's not the
same as Swiss Pear. I saw a Tage Frid piece once in that kind of
