    After global trade of 2013 FIAAO inspired me to make a natural with some lamination elements. I found some forks but none of them where symmetrical and I was busy at the time and it was put on hold.
    After I received my Christmas trade from FlipGun I liked the way he does fork tips and it all came together for me - I had a plan.
    Here it is - inspired by FIAAO and FlipGun.

    It was large fork and it was offset to one side. In order to fix it I cut the handle and laminated ceder and Brazilian cherry.

    Wow, that is immaculate!

    Great choice of woods and that finish is perfect! What did you use?

    Fork itself is soft wood I used four coats of polyurethane to make it durable.
    I think it's maple of some kind.
    Thanks.
    Thanks Doom

    Damn Snader, that's purty! As the disgraced SSB would say, it's very shinny;).

    Four coats of polyurethane, sanded between applications.
    Lint free cloth folded in to a sponge to apply.
    Thanks.

    He was a silly little troll that constantly spelled the word shiny as 'shinny'. He just loves 'shinny' things, like a raccoon on a glass soda bottle.

    You guys are cracking me up!

    Snader - dang bro, that is a sweeeeet slingshot - shinny or not ;) The colors really look great together and I just love the shape and how you worked in your laminations. I've got a long way to go to make this grade of work, but seeing stuff like this just inspires me.
