    How can something so simple look so good?!

    You manage to make every PFS you carve look totally different, no mean feat! I really like the shape on this one :)

    Seems easier to find natural wood to make a PFS.

    It doesn't even need to be a fork, just a stout length of wood as long as the grain is as you have it lined up.

    Very nice work and a good eye you have to bring out the natural shape and beauty of the wood.

    I will certainly have an eye on a piece of wood that i can make one like that from.
