After showing a co-worker my Mother’s day gift, she asked if I could create a couple of items for her. One 12 ” fruit tray and an oblong “Apple Dish”.
For the fruit tray she wanted it to match her kitchen colors of White and Black, so I used some Poplar. Since a 12” wide hole would be too large for the base on my router to remain stable, I made a half circle template with a 6” radius and made a new base for my router that was 8”x8”. The tray has a 1 1/2” lip with the top half inch stained black.
The oblong dish is made from Poplar and Red Oak in alternating bands. This also required me to create a new template for my bowl bit. The dish can hold three apples and she is using it as a center piece on her dinning room table.
