    Looks dynamite! Manzanita is an interesting wood, but it is beautiful when finished like this! I'm curious about the finish you used as well.

    the first two are verathane, the stickshot is finished with epoxy. I used the two part 5min kind but recommend using the 60min set as it was hard as hell to get done in 5.

    The manzanita looks like ivory until I see the heartwood on the fork tips. Great job on the finish. Nice forks.

    Here's my newest one. I call it problem child. Purple heart is nasty stuff but so beautiful, I had to buy special scrollsaw blades so it wouldn't burn. scared because of BV's incident, I had goggles on and a shirt wrapped around my face so I didn't breathe the dust. it dulled a sanding drum in record time and broke tons of blades but its worth it in the end, it handles and shoots quite well. sanded to 600 with verathane finish and polished.

    These look great! The 'dog-face mini' is really creative!
    Very clean and neat work all around!
    Where are you sourcing more exotic woods? I've found several websites, but I prefer to hear feedback from people I trust first!
    Ok...now this purple heart beauty pops up and I have to edit my post!
    That came out amazing man, just great!! And the TBB is a great call, aesthetically speaking!
    That drum sander is a treasure, I'm always keeping my eye out for a decent-priced model
