That is really nice! You have to be careful though when choosing the area you want... Not a lot of fruit are going to stay into the bowl if it's shaped like the Himalayas... ;)

They showed one of downtown Vancouver and Stanley Park at last year's FME user meeting. Quite an interesting thing indeed. Wouldn't mind having one myself (just not of The Netherlands, for one, the fruit would roll off...)

Wow Casey, Cool link!

I'm guessing the Missoula valley would work pretty well, although for liquids you'd want to choose an endorheic area like the Great Basin... :lol:

I guess they have a fruit-friendly z factor. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I really love these - it would though be cool if u could choose certain woods that fit the region.

I would love to see one of these with a hand drawn/painted map overlaying it.

It's difficult to recognize an area or scale without any kind of spatial reference.

It would be a shame to mess with the sexy simplicity of the 'contour' grain though!
