A Bowl of Fruit

The apple and the bowl are silver maple, the pear is sycamore. I know the apple could have used a little more work. I used the skew for all the shaping of the fruit ( the apple started out a bit larger ).

Looks great. Thought I was the only one to do outside curves with a skew.

Slatron,
Nice idea on the fruit. I think I would be tempted to try some colored dyes on the fruit.

I have seen a set up to make a bananas on the lathe CN, haven't tried that yet. The dyes Mike, I considered, if I do more I may delve into that.

Tim, great job. Very realistic looking fruit! Next would be turning each piece of fruit from the wood of the tree it came from!

Thats a nice little project you could always add to over time. Maybe you would not need dyes, but instead go for different species depending on what you have lying around the shop. You could have a bunch of apples, each a different kind of wood, that sort of thing.

That'd make a nice project for a beginner like me, to try different woods out, and have a long running project that builds up over time.

A darn good idea, Thanks much! And very nice work too!
