    I am still with my parents, and we managed to break the pasta fork under a heavy load of Spaghetti.

    I replaced the original, now broken handle with a wooden one, secured by a metal pin and superglue, oiled with olive oil.

    Reading the title..

    I expcted to see a fork made of spaghetti and epoxy-resin..
    Thought that someone just boiled spaghetti to make them soft,
    shaped ´em, dried them again and then made an epoxy-pasta
    cast fork :)
    (Yes, micarta and epoxy have an effect on my thinking ;) )

    Anyway: nice fork!

    Greetings,

    Not what I expected either--my thoughts were like Be's.

    Its very cool to rebuild(upgrade imo:)) things rather than fill up landfills in this disposable age.
    nice work.

    When I read he title I thought about making a dough out of wheat flour and water, shaping it into a ss frame, dry it, put some glue finish on it. and shoot it. I would say its doable.:D
