This is a microwave dried Rhodedendron fork, in it's work in progress state.
It fits with a bit of natural canter for my sideways shooting style and it has a bit of a curve that acts as a palm swell to fill the hand perfectly. I haven't made a natural in 35 years since I used bicycle tube and vine maple! This one should be a lot more pleasent to shoot. I believe that I will work it so that I can use latex flatbands.




I'll post more as the project progresses.

I've been told by a few guys that rhodedendron is a good wood to use. The dried branches around my house are tough enough to stand on.
I'm drying a cherry fork too.
Ps. My wife thinks that I'm nutty for posting a pic of a bare stick! She's probably right but at least I'm keeping good company with you all
