    Here's 2 recently finished up. The bigger one is a fork I found in TN and I have no idea what it is but I wish I had many more.

    The smaller one is Oak with a Wenge and acrylic butt that is from scraps Bugsbrew sent me a while back. If you have a frame with a clear core from Bugs, I'd love to see it. 0915201001.jpg 0915201002.jpg 0915201002a.jpg

      Big one looks like crape myrtle. I've made them from it. Ornamental tree but is hard stuff I've found. Good looking shooters by the way.

      These two would fit perfectly in anyone collection, but they tell me they want to be shot!

      Thanks for the kind words gentlemen! I've got a few more that are finished or close to being done, I seem to like starting the project but not wrapping them up. ;)

      Finished it resembles Crepe Myrtle but the bark was rather thick and rough.

      I am exactly the same way Jake....I think it’s more because of the times I get to work on slings, and where I am at those times, which dictates what I can do at any given time.

      I do a lot of carving, rasping, and sanding on my lunch hour at work, which is pretty easy as I can carry a small tool bag for that.....but I can’t easily do inlay at work, etc......so I get a lot of frames to a certain point, till I can get time at home to do the harder stuff, and I don’t get very much time at all to craft at home.

      I have a thick branch of a Crepe Myrtle drying in my workshop. Anxious to see what it looks like inside. Your forks look great!
