I’m looking for plans etc. to make chevron patterns for a turned fruit bow to set on the kitchen counter. Any ideas or info where to find plans to create this pattern. Thanks

Marvin … If you have an indexing lathe, you could build a router jig that might be able to do what you want. Haven’t seen plans, but I did sit through a demo a couple of years ago where a guy used an indexing lathe, a simple jig and a trim router to create hash marks on a spindle.

Just think of a bowl big enough to hold fruit and go for it.

Not plans, but are the examples shown in feature rings of turnings at the link below the type of design you are trying to make?
