    I have not shot this yet and as I have learned as I went along, I'm not sure I will. However, I made this out of a natural peppermint tree fork. It may well be that it's greatest benefit was showing me the grain of this wood. I sneaked back to the same tree in the dead of night and forked it again after seeing how the grain came up. Can't recall how big the fork is now, but I'll either do a nice classic job or a rambone if its big enough.

    Actually, I just realised I could band that with tubes.

    Yeah, nice fork. I like how you squared it off, it's a nice deviation from the usual natural fork. And you're right, that grain looks really nice. What did you use to finish it?
