This was the first time I ever worked with spalted wood. The patterns and grain it brings out in wood is out of this world.

The arbutus is from a downed tree in the middle of the woods. It was a hefty sized tree and it had fungi all over it. Shaped it to similar to joerg's moorhammer.

The maple was literally found in a ditch off the side of the road. I love the black the spalting brings out in the grain :)

Both bathed in linseed oil overnight -

Sweet pair of shooters. Both are great, but I'm a hammergrip shooter so the Moorhammer-inspired piece really puts a smile on my face, not to mention the fact that the wood is drop-dead gorgeous.

Dang! Them are some sweet shooters you made there, dude. I know it's been said like a million times, but I am continually impressed by the works exhibited here, and amazed at what hides beneath the bark on any given fork.
Now peeling away the bark is like unwrapping a present.

Thanks for sharing!

Howdy neighbor approx. (approx. 25 mi over the water to Victoria as the seagull fly's), those look spectacular.

Went hunting for downed and moldy madrone forks last summer in hopes of finding at least one even close to that beautiful, have a couple of candidates drying but...
