A few weeks ago my friend shared a Planet Green article about starting a communal fruit bowl at work. It is incredible how much coffee we consume during a workday, so I thought a bowl of fruit may offer a much healthier distraction. There is nothing like a crisp apple. I brought up this idea at work and one of my co-workers offered to let me use his wood shop for making a bowl.
The fruit bowl is a big hit and this is how I made it.
After a piece of walnut was cut in half and we put the two pieces through the planer.

All these pieces were cut at a 60 degree angle.
At the end of Day-1. Check out my face guard. ROCK!
