Hey guys , I thought I'd post a few pictures of some forks from my backyard and see what you think :
I did a little carving on each to get a little better grip. the first on wanted to twist in my hand at full draw so, when I finished the fork with tung oil , I put a little sand grit on each application of finish just on the handle and it solved the grip problem.The first fork is applewood, the second is vine, and the third is boxelder . the applewood is by far the hardest , the vine is the softest and the boxelder is a med. hardness. Next I'm on the hunt for oak and hickory or perhaps maple !!
