Bushmaster sent me three natural forks in a trade. One was completed and returned as promised - the finest natural I have ever worked. Another was given Indian Teak tips and was added to my arsenal. It was used regularly. Last weekend a young man (12), who has no father figure in his life, came to visit with his mom. We shot up my catchbox for a while and he caught the bug while falling in love with this second fork from Bushmaster. I made sure his mom had it to put under the Christmas tree for him. ...then I remembered Bushmaster had given me three forks... First let me say, if Bushmaster ever offers you natural forks, DROP EVERYTHING AND TRADE. I have never worked finer forks in my life. He lives where the trees grow slow (tight rings), are just hard enough to be very strong but just soft enough to work easily. Every single one he sent me practically carved itself. Not a clue what wood this is but it was a pleasure to work, and unless Bushmaster sends me more naturals to work, this one is never leaving my possession. Sanded to 600 grit, two coats of Tung Oil and four coats of lacquer, complete re-sanding to remove all exterior lacquer (lacquer was only used to seal the pores), wiped in rubbing alcohol and give my signature wax polishing wheel treatment. Hope you enjoy the pictures below.
