Wife manages a church sponsored program called Apples of Gold, a mentoring for young women re: family life. She wanted some gifts for the mentors, so I made up a couple samples from recently harvested hedge wood, aka Osage Orange. The leaves are hand carved poplar and only a few thousandths thicker than the actual apple leaf. The leaves are painted, but the apples are natural. They, like the real fruit, will eventually turn brown, but they won’t rot!
