Step 3


Clean the parts while they are still in the machine and the vacuum is on. By doing this you can efficiently wipe over the complete surface. Sort the different parts and put them together. 

Tip: Mark the front of the single pieces with adhesive tape so that you can assemble the pieces correctly.


  • You can cut the parts of the bowl from different types of wood and mix them during assembly.
  • A fruit bowl can be personalised with a laser engraving. This is ideal as it allows you to create a standard bowl then add personalisation later in line with customer orders.
