So Cromag was kind enough to send me some replacement Shedua for my dinked up fork. Before I cut into it though I thought it might be worth trying my hand at repairing the fork hit first, knowing that if I messed it up I had a replacement piece to fall back on.
Here are a few of the before pics:

And here are the after pics!

I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. Thanks for looking!

Great work! Looks nice and clean and good call on the repair before going deeper with it.
Thanks bud. Yeah I can probably polish it up a bit more but I might just leave it. Steam, CA Glue, and a jewelers needle file. Scorched it juuuuust a little bit but fortunately it matches the grain 🙂.

Nice job!! A great skill to add to your toolbox!
Thanks Cass! I have to say I actually had fun screwing about with it. Makes it easier when you know you have replacement parts, of course 😊. I was telling John I need to get into making these, I don’t have a spindle sander or anything like that so they would be completely hand made, as a matter of fact cut with a jewelers saw, but maybe that could work to my advantage if they looked nice? I need to plan a bit. Oh and buy epoxy. And core material. And wood. 😆

Nothing wrong with completely hand made. That's how all of my frames are done. I need a good sander though.
