Look forward to : painted metal, more polished wenge and fork tips made out of wenge (waiting on a piece).

    I really love Wenge. The wood falls off in flakes almost and powder rather than chips sorta, really makes for nice handles and fun to shape.<br><br>Thanks! The wood grain is very nice, I need a sunnier day to show you though <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9">

    I took three layers of wood, carved out a slot in the middle layer and the top of the outer layers and sank the fork in, cut a piece off the bottom and glued it on top to seal it up after filling hole with appropriate fastener (superglue)<br><br>But you could accomplish the same with a drill and a little sandpaper, or dremel a lot quicker.

    Ahh, now I see the glue seams. I did not even notice them before. Looking great so far!
