    That' s a beauty. I like the simplicity of the fork, the fat handle and the colors. You did it great for a first experiment, can' t wait to see the next one.

    Thanks for the good words !<br><br>To create it i looked around and was inspired so i started the experiment. I m happy you like it too <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"> . <br><br>The handle is made from some leftover pices of Hemlock, its a light wood with a warm grip. For finish i use a resin oil primer (linseed oil/citrus peel oil/turpentine oil) and furniture wax.<br>The frame is made from multiplex, finished with green mordant (i hope this is the right word) and also wax. I m surprised because of the special effect of stripes and intensity.
