How to chop Onions...use a rusty circular saw of course ! Wink

Don't think the one in the jar is gonna go in the pan, slightly past it's best !

Just a bit of fun...well, it made me smile Smile

Lit with a small diffused LED light, ( I used the top from an hairspray can).
An HDR image, 5 frames combined in Lightroom, finished with a few tweaks in Photoshop.

Thanks for taking the time to call in.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

Onions are wonderful when they sprout. Very nice arrangement.

Wow! That's a drastic way to avoid onion tears! I love it. Great range of textures and beautifully lit. Dad was a DIY man/bodger. He had a circular saw which he got so close to one day it chipped his glasses SadSad

An almost ouch, no Health and Safety rules there then.
I have seem many...far too many...accidents with circular saws in my time, the damage they do when misused is horrific !

Wow Janet, what a combination and drama at it's very best! The next time I'm chopping onions I will have your image well and truly in my mind!!! Fab image, as always😄!

A strange combination! But it's different and it works! Not into vegetables, but I do love onions 😋 Are they vegetables?

They certainly are Trev....

Onions are the sort of thing you toss into the pan without a second thought, but they're still a vegetable and they still count towards your 5-a-day (albeit in a pretty large quantity).

Many thanks all.

Not certain I'd like to have that 'utensil' in my kitchen - especially when drinking red wine while preparing dinner!Wink

Stick to slicing with a knife Janet - that blade looks deadly. Different - keep taking the tablets.Tongue
Very creative work Janet, great title too.

As a frog. Or soup.

But it looks good!

That look lethal for my hands but if it cut onions without tears, I'd be mighty glad!
Fun combination.
