Here is the required materials to make the fruit bowls.
First sand blast and powder coat all metal parts to achieve a professional finish.The first fruit bowl is made by flipping the mudguard upside down as shown above and glue the front bracket and the rear stands with two part epoxy resin. The stopper also needs glueing with 2 part epoxy resin. It is that simple.
For the other fruit bowl flip upside down and glue the headstock clamp piece which acts as a stand. Then glue the rear bracket with two part epoxy resin as shown above.
