    This time I had an oak fork that look too curved, so this was just a test how difficult it will be to work with oak. I knew that there is white soft wood that I'd like to rasp and leave only the hard core. However left part of the oak was too thin so I had to leave it there.<br><br>I rasped only the right fork part and because I liked the white wood so much, I left it on the handle as well. And here it is, quite nice effect, something like <i>Siamese twins</i> <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br>No oil, only rasped and sanded<br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=33&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i42.servimg.com/u/f42/17/72/96/22/2012-111.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br>Linseed oil and beeswax<br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=36&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i42.servimg.com/u/f42/17/72/96/22/2012-114.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=37&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i42.servimg.com/u/f42/17/72/96/22/2012-115.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=38&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i42.servimg.com/u/f42/17/72/96/22/2012-116.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=39&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i42.servimg.com/u/f42/17/72/96/22/2012-117.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br>Testing Dankung tubes<br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=40&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i42.servimg.com/u/f42/17/72/96/22/2012-118.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a>

    Thanks guys! Tried shooting, but I'm not too accurate with it.. I'll keep training and if it doesn't get better, it will be a decoration on the wall <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br>Btw. I made the sshot in the office during lunch breaks, so I'm quite proud of it, heh.
