I found a great cedar fork that was really chunky, sorry for not having pics of the original fork. Anyway, I wanted to carve out one of my current models from a natural fork, just for fun. It came out quite nice and Eastern Red Cedar has a beautiful grain, especially within the fork.

Check it out and it is NOT for sale, staying in the personal collection.

The finish on your frames is always so perfectly smooth without being too glossy or oily...is there any chance that you could give me a hint as to what you use as a "finish"?

Thanks all! I still haven't shot it, I should be taken out and flogged for such behavior! It sure is purty though

Nice job Nathan, hope you wear a respirator cedar is very toxic. We'd hate to loose you Bud.

Man that's a beauty, Nathan. Looks like it's gonna be a outstanding shooter, too.

Absolutely wear a respirator and a quality dust collection system! I generally go to "nearly" finished with just a carving knife on cedar, to reduce dust. It is a very pleasant wood to use a sharp knife on!

I just said this in another post - but what can you do: This is one of my favorites so far. I was afraid to sculpt much on my first natural but I plan to give it a whirl soon. Just beautiful detail.
