    yesterday i found i fallen tree in monza's park, which has been dead for 6-7 months, that gave me a big fork. i don't know precisely which kind of wood is, but the bark is similar to oak and it was close to some oaks

    although there were some little cracks i decided to carve a moorhammer handle, because when i made this type of handle for the first time i realized that it was incredibly confortable. so, that's the rough shape

    then sanded up to 1500 and oiled, i think it's pretty a good grain for an oak :D

    You did a great job my friend. The wood and the finish are so nice, thanks for showing us that little beauty. Cheers.

    Wow, very nice work! The grain looks more like walnut than oak, but it is beautiful either way

    first thank you, your answers make me soo proud :D

    well, i don't know what kind of walnut grows in california, but sure this isn't italian walnut, our type is darker than this when oiled

    very nice work artons

    i think it is not oak
    it doesn´t have the lines which are typically for oak

    and i think oak has not so much "foam"
    (and the "foam" is as a STAR by oaks)

    Like the shape, very nice fork geometry, but defiantly not a beginner slingshot :D

    Nice colour of finishing!

    Very smooth roundings?

    I think it will lie smooth in the hand!

    Your ss is very beautiful and I very much like the size and the look! (I am partial to the moorhammer though:eek:!) They just feel right don't they.
