After showing a co-worker my Mother’s day gift, she asked if I could create a couple of items for her. One 12 ” fruit tray and an oblong “Apple Dish”.

For the fruit tray she wanted it to match her kitchen colors of White and Black, so I used some Poplar. Since a 12” wide hole would be too large for the base on my router to remain stable, I made a half circle template with a 6” radius and made a new base for my router that was 8”x8”. The tray has a 1 1/2” lip with the top half inch stained black.

The oblong dish is made from Poplar and Red Oak in alternating bands. This also required me to create a new template for my bowl bit. The dish can hold three apples and she is using it as a center piece on her dinning room table.

Are you cutting these on your scroll saw or using a plung router with a template to make them?

Both, I use a template with a bowl/tray bit then I mark out the wall and cut it on the scroll saw. The possibilities are unlimited with this bit. All you need is a creative mind and a sheet of hard board for the templates.
