Product Description

Swiss Pear Spindle Blank

Widely used for fancy turnery and excellent for carving. Also for brushbacks, umbrella handles, measuring instruments such as set squares and T–squares. In Europe it is used for recorders, and when dyed black, for violin and guitar fingerboards and piano keys. Selected logs of suitable diameter and clean bole are sliced for decorative veneering, the quartered surfaces often displaying a large mottled figure.

General Description: Pear’s heartwood is pinkish-brown in colour with very fine rays and pores, straight grained and a very fine and even texture. Weight about 700 kg/m³ (44 lb/ft³); specific gravity .70.
