Tomorro is our high school graduation and a couple friends saw my pictures from the other day and requested them for their graduation events. I wish I took pictures of the sides because I did leaves and vines going down them.

Here's the three I did tonight:


Here's a side view of the cantelope from yesterday:


I think I'll pick up one of those little knives off of as my little pairing knife makes curves pretty tough.

    Bruce...You are doing a fantastic job!!! Especially considering the equipment you are using!! I truly have a great resource for you for a complete kit...but I only had two people express interest. I intend to post it as an invite to give me more bargaining power. Please, I promise I will post tomorrow (or maybe even tonight). If I can get 10 people, then I know I can get everyone a break. Please hold of on your order? I checked the website you provided, and those knives are included in the kit. I promise, I will be on it, post it, and keep you in the loop. You are doing great work, and I SO appreciate your ability to visualize on the fruit. It is an art in itself. ;)

    Keep 'em coming, they are truly works of art!
  • They look great. You have inspired me to buy the knives and learn to do it too. Cool website, thanks for posting it. The knife set is only $15, so I think I will spring for it.


    Happily egging on my original large BGE since 1996... now the owner of 6 eggs. Call me crazy, everyone else does!

    I dig it man!

    Easier on the eyes than another crusty butt. :P

    Keep sharing
  • Thanks all for the kind words...just fun playing and I wanted to share. LC, that sounds good to me. I'm really not in a hurry but thought for $15 I would try it. I also practiced some of the techniques in the picture you posted last time but I just don't have the mobility with this knife so I'll wait for the new kit.

    Faith, you might wait for this kit as well since you are interested. It sure sounds like it will be a great set up!

    Ripnem, you just made Dr. Pepper shoot out of my nose!

  • I will wait for Little Chef to find one for us, but if she doesn't, I will order one from the importfood site. I really like that website, and I will be spending alot of time on it, checking out all the recipes. Thank you VERY much for posting it.
