Don't Chip a Tooth - Canadian Woodworking Magazine

Woodworkers' Gallery: John Spitters, from Abbotsford, BC, used an assortment of tools and techniques to make this fruit bowl and the appetizing fruits inside it. 


Don't Chip a Tooth

Made by John Spitters

Starting on the lathe he turned the bowl. He then applied water-based dye to the piece and patiently added texture to the rim with a pyrography pen. Wipe-on poly added some protection. To make the fruit he turned the bottom of each piece first, then rotated each piece and shaped the top. John said the hardest part of the project was shaping the fruit carefully, so it looked just right.
