    A friend of mine has some property with a variety of trees on it. He let me come out and scavenge a bunch of forks a while ago. I asked him if I could do anything in exchange for the forks and he suggested that I make something from some of the applewood that I picked up. He thought it would be cool to have something that came from a tree that was planted by one of the original settlers to the area. I took one of the bigger gnarly looking pieces and decided to use the KPX pattern posted by Peter Recuas. I love so many of Peter's designs and this one turned out fantastic. BTW, the wood was dried, rough cut and then stabilized with cactus juice before the final shaping, sanding and a couple coats of BLO. Enjoy the photos...

      I asked my friend about the type of apple tree and he doesn't know. All he could tell me is that it is old. :)

      Dang! that looks awesome... and comfortable.

      I, too, love Peter Recuas's designs... but my work seldom turns out this fine!
