Hi Dave, Thank you for this very informative post. I have enjoyed reading through it.
I have a question please:
Can you recommend any alternatives to Pear (for planking larger surfaces) with these key properties:
> Stable with changes in humidity (more stable than Pear)
> Not a noticeable grain or colour fleck through it
> Mid brown or darker in colour depth (I attach a photo of some Pear that I have and am looking for this colour or a bit darker)

Thanks in advance.

I have an order with Dave from the lumberyard for some natural Pear deck planking.
Its been held up at the post office because of the coronavirus, but will post some photos when it arrives.
Hi Brian,
I am following up on your previous post. Did you receive the pear from Dave at Lumberyard?
He sent me a small sample which I received a few days ago and the quality looks very good.
I would be keen to know what the Apple is like. Alex Dobrenko used Apple for his models and spoke very highly about it.
