Hi

i hope the pure slickness on the finish comes through in pictures. To me it's hard to beat mother nature's finish.
I cut and stripped this fork the same day. Did some slow microwave drying, let it sit a day or two then proceeded with finishing. The only place a piece of sand paper has touched this is in the fork band grooves. It was pretty dang slick under the bark, but then i took a polished antler tine and burnished it all over.
i then applied a couple coats of tru oil, but honestly got tired of waiting on it to dry. So after the last coat dried i applied two thin coats of Minwax fast drying polyurethane. Then a coat johnsons paste wax.
For me, sand paper could never approach this finish while leaving all the character of the wood.
Thanks.

That's a great finish on that natty. I'm gonna have to remember the order of what you put on there. Beautiful work!

Very nice job, slick as glass.....when you burnished it, prob closed the pores of the wood to where the Tru-Oil couldn't soak in, and took longer than normal to dry, but looks great
