This is a piece commissioned by my Girlfriend. She wanted a Banana Stand, I made her a fruit bowl as well!

This from an off cut of American Walnut I was given, I squared it off and then turned it as a square bowl on the lathe, one of the off cuts became the vertical part.

The underside is undercut and the parts assembled without glue or fasteners.

Finish is 2 coats of friction polish and beeswax.

That is a very nice piece and should be quite useful. You said it was “commissioned” by your girlfriend – did you mean that you charged her for it :-)?

What a great design for a fruit stand! Like it very much, will get plenty of use and a wonderful table centerpiece.

Have your say...
