    Hey folks. Just thought I'd show these new forks I found in the yard today. :D I cut them off a big limb that broke off one of my hickory trees last spring.

    You could make a wood sculpture masterpiece out of that fatty on the right!

    Haha. Thanks! I'm hoping to do that very thing. :) Haven't got a design for it yet but I'll think of something.

    Nice forks, nice and thick, especially that one on the right. I guess you can also save the shavings for the smoker later ;)

    You're a lucky man! :) I love hickory, but it's not really accessible in my country. That fat fork is a treasure in my eyes :eek:. All of them are.

    It's great to work with. You can carve it very precisely. I had only a tiny piece from an arboretum "storm-off". You can even cut underturns etc. https://www.theslingshotforum.com/f5/roe-hickory-ttf-experimental-30733/

    Please let us know how your work goes with that!

    Cheers,
