    Hi all.
    My first naturals. Forks that I used came from some kind a maple tree that grows in my yard. I had to trim low branches to make my grass cutting expirience more enjoyable.
    Forks where small and not straight and I honestly tought that nothing good would come of it. But you have to start "small";)
    I took great pleasure working with natural - it's hard to explain, there is some kind of magic in them.
    Thanks for looking.

    [​IMG] Wow, Snader! These are totally awesome. They look like you carved them from bone. Beautifully shaped and beautifully finished. I'm awestruck at the moment.

    Thanks so much for sharing these beauties with us!

    They feel like bone in your hands, and you just don't want to let them go.
    "My precious..."
    I burned the edges on small one to give it more definition. I felt like it was to plain.

    Good one, Gollum!

    I wondered about it. Not at all too plain. Simply beautiful. I love the smooth ivory look. Time and age will take care of the rest. They'll just get better as you use them. Just don't forget what happened to Sméagol. :p

    I am always to late with my comments, :( so I can only say that the two look very cool. The shape of the smaller I like best, very original.

    You fell the magic when building those two beauties, we see the magic in your pictures. Nice Work. :)

    Thanks everybody for kind words.
    Had them banded up and they shoot good.
    I will change the bands on the smaller ss - painful band slap takes some fun away.

    Nice work. Some people prefer asymmetrical forks and classify them as natural ergos.

    Somehow I missed this thread, just slipped right past me. These are great little forks and you turned them into some awesome little shooters! I'm really liking the looks of these!
