I worked for hours, squaring up the panel, cutting it into four pieces and sewing the 'window frame' strips into place.  Next, I pieced all of the bottom blocks and then I got sidetracked by the siren call of the lathe!

  1. The bowl and saucer are just beautiful!

  2. Wow, the pineapple has fattened up fast!! The saucer is beautiful — great idea!

  3. That pineapple looks good enough to eat! Yum! That bowl and saucer are so pretty. It was a great idea to use the other wood for the saucer. Each one I see that you finish makes me wonder how you did it. I'm amazed.

  5. It still kills me that you can grow pineapples in your backyard! Love it!!!

  6. Your projects are so beautiful. I have never grown a pineapple, how fun!

  7. The bowl and saucer are beautiful!!! :-)
