    The notorious @Ibojoe has posted a couple of “Spoonrest” natural forks. I confess I was smitten. It is one of the most dramatic approaches to shaping a raw fork that has come along. So here’s my attempt - cedar. Shaped mostly with a rasp. Finished with Tru-Oil.

    I got a little radical on the curves and went out to the bark in a couple of places. But, what the heck, it is a natural fork! LOL!

    Fits in the hand very nicely, and shoots great!

      Thanks @trapperdes, @Clint, @The preacher and @Hamid!
      That "S" profile cuts all the way through the heartwood in two places, so it is really exposed. It's also a surprisingly comfortable shape for a pinch grip!
