I got an apple tree from my parents in law from their very small garden. Chiseled a bowl (apple shaped bowl) from it as a chrismas present for them. Of course mainly apple should be given in it.

That is cool. When I first looked at the small pic I thought it was a slab of wood with a small hole in it. Once you expand the photo you can tell that you did a very nice and clever job.

You do have to go to the big picture to really appreciate it. That is nice!

LOL – I was trying to figure out what kind of offset you used
on a lathe to do that! Then I read the caption. Great job,
very unique project. Bet your parents will get a huge kick
out of it.

An apple from an apple. Neat.

Very nice, I bet the apples taste much better, when displayed in this bowl.

Well done, what a cool idea.
Thanks for posting,

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
