I then left it for a day before rubbing it down with 'Dark Tan' wax Kiwi boot polish. I think it's actually sealed the oil in the wood, no leaching! The polish doesn't stain the hand either. It's a bit dark though, I may call it 'The Turd'...

I saved these forks before they became useless and rotten! (the ditch did smell terrible, like stagnant water) Here's the other natural I made, that one I varnished.

    Nice pice of wood - and a funny (but true) name ! I like the finish more than the second one, looks more woodable.

    I'll check out more bog-wood, or root forks because you get such unique wood marking/wood effect
