(I'm not sure if this is the right area to post this, since it doesn't involve any cooking, but I dunno where else would be more appropriate...)
I made a bunch of salad decorations out of radishes, a while ago:



There were five different sorts of flowers, a bee, and two... um... disk things. I'm not sure what to call them.
A better view of all of them:


Way too tilted a picture, but the bee was captured nicely:


And a close-up of one of the flowers:


Then I ate them all.  Grin

Eat anything, but if it bites back, boil it.

Nice knifework. Now are you sure you can't do that with a slap-chop?

Sorry, didn't see anyone replied!
I've no idea, you can get a slap-chop and tell me. Tongue However, I'm pretty sure I would rather do things like these by hand, because that way is more fun and shows skill/creativity, unlike pressing a button (and spending money I unfortunately do not possess at the moment).

Great! But I think you need a well-sharpened knife for a cutting clean. I see the curves were not yet perfectly cut.

When I'm not making crafts, I'm dreaming them up!

Yeah, that and it was my first time doing it. But fortunately, it's not like it was for a radish cutting competition or anything. Tongue My grandmother cut radishes prettily for salads, I figured I could learn how to, as well.
