    Hello all! I have been a follower of Joerg's videos for some years now but today is the first time I have joined this excellent forum, and the first time I have purchase thera band gold! I have some natural forks, which I can upload, but this is one of, if not my favourite of them. Very little was done to this, and I think it turned out quite nicely. It's more of a finger grip shooter due to the thin handle. The pale thin wood reminded me of bone, hence the name! No idea what the wood is, but it's surprisingly strong. Apologies for the webcam picture quality. Let me know what you guys think <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=7&u=18224152" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i76.servimg.com/u/f76/18/22/41/52/photo_16.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a>[/img][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Looks good! Is the fork strong enough to shoot double banded? Just asking to keep the hobby safe..

    Thanks! I've shot with this a few times now and the forks could probably take a lot more. It's amazing how strong it is for the size! Cheers for your concern though <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> I've got another natural that I'd love to stain a darker colour but I'd like to keep this one plain. Have you got any suggestions of what would work well?

    Pigment ink works well on wood, as long as you don't sand it all down.<br>If you don't have this stuff, a thick black marker pen works, but it only does for really dark black.<br><br>Hope I could help <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7">
