Wood Nail Hardwood Thumb Vegetable

I collected this fork about a year ago. I'm not usually big on maple, but this had an old scrape that had healed itself before a storm took the limb down. I got lucky.

The scrape turned out some very nice spalting.

Finished with wet sanding at 400, BLO wipes, and Tru-Oil.

Almost disappears in the hand.

Loving it!

When I see exquisite things that I want to remember I tend to personify them, usually as beautiful women. It's a useful mnemonic.

Sharker, for instance, has given us many, most notably Sophia Loren, Raquel Welch, and Bo Derek.

I'm sure we can all remember when Pride Products introduced us to Farrah Fawcett and Bridgette Bardot...

This slingshot, my dear KawKan, is Jessica Alba, with most of her torso and one leg covered in vanilla fudge sauce.

God Bless You.

That is SOME treasure for sure. Nice! Just the perfect size and amount of work. I love maple...but spalting on any thing is just more awesomeness .
Thanks for sharing.
