    And I want to thank SLINGNSHOT and Palmettoflyer for the awesome advice on worm hole filling. On this one I used thin CA and blue marking chalk. Finished with Danish Oil and paste wax. Stay safe everyone.

      Nice! I need to try the color chalk next time. I think that every natural I carve needs something filled.

      Thanks. Seems like every one I get dry or green is wormholed this year. The chalk works great the one I got is for chalk lines bought it at Tractor Supply, but I've seen it at pretty much any home improvement store.

      We learn something new from each one. Maybe try to focus on the edge of the band more so than the fork tip, providing you are not already doing so.

      Looks like a good solid frame.
