    I was working on a natural Longan fork for the one tool contest and had many hours in it when it cracked. This was not a surprise as everything else over the weekend was total crap. I am thinking about drilling the fork perpendicular to the crack and gluing in a dowel rod for strength. Is this worthwhile or should the fork become forge fuel?<br><br><a href="http://m.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/7300439084/lightbox/" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">crack</a>

    Yes i wont be able to enter this in the one-tool contest. Don't worry though, already started carving on a beautiful Mango fork that was lying in the middle of the road!
