Hi, my name is Byron, and I'm a slingaholic. Seriously, I think I have an addiction. So I was able to salvage the olive wood flooring sample into a PFS. I glued the two pieces back together and put the joint right in the center. Since its small and you grip the forks up I, I really don't foresee there being a structural problem. Same deal as the maple and walnut, no stain or oil, just CA glue for the finish. Buffed with jewelers rouge and final polish with Mother's Mag polish. She's going to get some TBG when my order comes in today. I hope you like it!
