    You've been forking off I see. Ha! I don't look at shrubbery or brush piles the same anymore. Give a shout or pm if you want some leather or rubber.

    Are you making any progress over there, neighbor. I'm sure there are some varmints up in Sun Burst that need bustin.

    That looks nice, man. I like the small plain ones. Like a Rufus Hussy (R.I.P.) Derringer. I've been having a lot of fun with this little Dogwood RHD (Rufus Hussy Derringer) that's banded up with 107 office rubber bands.

    Well I started on the big brother. It will be trimmed down of course. It is Ironwood.<br><br><img src="http://i162.photobucket.com/albums/t267/Busted11290/SD534307.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    Nice looking fork. When you say ironwood, do you mean a small to medium sized tree, with slick hard, grey bark and Birch looking leaves and knawrly, muscular looking branches? <br><br>If so, it might also be know as American Hornbeam. Here a link to the best picture I could Google up. <br><a href="http://www.cas.vanderbilt.edu/bioimages/species/caca18.htm" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Carpinus caroliniana&mdash;American Hornbeam</a><br><br><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hornbeam" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Wiki - Hornbeam</a>

    That's a whole fist full of fork. There's no telling what's hiding in that thing. <br><br>I like how in your last photo, RobertP, that you can see my hand in a post on the screen behind the fork. If I'm in a post, in a post, does that mean I've been incepted. Noooo! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9">

    A few twigs heading for the skip there. . . .but its not all bad. The trouble is if you don't sell them you will likely cut them down for sheath material or for firewood. I don't go for any y shaped cut offs that aren't 50-100mm purely for creative purpose.
