Wow, that's nice. My zebrawood is cut differently. I think I like it better this way.

LOL! Ya don't want to eat it, Zebra wood is poisonous (it sure looks like fudge to me
). No joke, you should use a respirator when sanding it and seal the wood. Some people are very allergic to it. It goes to show, the most beautiful things in life are usually dangerous.


Nice work!

You know what it is? It rains all the time in Germany so you have lots of time to create great stuff. I spent the fall and winter of 08 in Cologne Germany and I think I saw the sun 6 times! Last winter is snowed like crazy!
Just joking, it's one of my favorite places! I make trips every six months, my company is based there.

Hi Baumstamm!


It is extraordinary that the grain of wood. and how well I like the fork. Why say you are not strong? not appear to be weak.

thank u mates 4 the nice coments! to go comercial, i havn´t the right tools 4. if u want to earn money, u have to make more then 10 a day. i need for one more then a day! so who would it pay? but sometimes i sell some cattys to buy new matereal, in this case u can get a real unique catty with lots of work for a good price. i wouldn´t like making one catty like the other, so every catty is real different, never done 2 times the same! i invest lots of time in sanding and varnish, u can´t do this if u want to sell it for a reasonable price.
chepo, it isn´t realy weak but this design is more 4 laminated wood ore g10 ore stuff and it´s best 4 casting! if u use unlaminated wood u shouldn´t make the prongs so thin, but then it dosn´t look so nice, so i couldn´t resist to play with the grain and the beauty. it is like a beautifull girl, u wouldn´t eaven ask if she can cook.
