Hi, I’m just setting up shop. This is my first woodworking project. I wanted a beginning project that would fit the few tools I have acquired so far.
I have tried to design the hanger with curves to reflect it’s function. The base also holds a bowl for other types of fruit. I guess I was somewhat successful, as my wife walked into the shop and said, “Is that a banana hanger?”
I learned a lot on this first project. My hand sawing skills with a coping saw are still pretty poor. So, I wound up getting a jigsaw, which made the job a lot easier. I learned how to think through the design before I started, to make sure the base would be the right size and shape to keep the stand from tipping over. Most of all, I had a lot of fun doing this! I think this is going to be a great hobby/journey for me.
I welcome all feedback and constructive criticisms.
Thanks for taking the time to look!
