Fruit

Wood turned fruit is very popular. It's a great display item for your home and looks quite good in a wood turned bowl. Choose your type of fruit as they can all pretty much be turned. Some additional carving might help some of them look more realistic!

 

Turning an AppleTurning an Apple
By: John Taylor
In this photo tutorial, John tells us that apples (and I imagine other fruit) sells well at craft fairs. He then explains how he uses a template to get the shape right. This could apply to all kinds of fruit. He then uses a screw chuck, padded by leather to turn the apple shape. This is a very good tutorial to learn the basics of turning fruit!
