    Went out forking today and couldn't wait to see this complete. I have these old oaks standing close by and there old broken branches were laying on the ground. Hmm should I let it rot? Not!!!! Got a bunch! Fell like im15 again :) [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Tools definitely rule, especially with Oak. Its a pig with handtools!

    Nice grain, I like the shape of the bottom of the handle too :)

    Nice find and nice work! I agree with VWScooby, I finished my first oak fork recently (for Achso_42) for the Christmas trade. That fork was a bear to work with. If I didn't have a drum sanding attachment on my drill press, it might never have been completed. I really like the shape you selected. Now, the big question - have you banded it up and shot it yet? How'd it shoot?

    Shoots nice, I guess, because I'm new at this I am not sure what to look for? I do like the smaller forks for the aim and the larger look mean. I need to read more shooting theory, got any suggestion? Thank you all for the replies.
