We made this fruit bowl with my Dad, actually he did most of it. i did the turning, and he finished it.
its 14 inch in Diameter and 11 inch in height. made of mahogany mostly and some rosewood and other local woods for the accents.
the last picture shows the “leftover” bowl that was the cut off parts from the big bowl. we did not want to send it to the firewood pile and made a smaller bowl out of it.

Great job! The inlay on the stem almost looks 3D.

funny thing about that inlay is that i did not liked when started turning it, but as was getting deeper i notice that that shape looked really good.
