One thing i learned from making red oak board bows, watch your grain. the forks could be dangerous if the grain is straight, the bends and curves of the forks will be a weak point, i know, as i had a fork hit on a red oak SS and it blew the fork right off, and this was with rather light bands.

For safety in the future, if you cant get multiplex, get thin plywood and wood glue up whatever you want for a more attractive grain, much safer. IF that fork snaps with a thick band, its gonna mess you up and your eye has no chance if it hits, your blind.
