    This is the second fork that I got from @Bone and @SlingCatcher.
    Mesquite is stubborn, so after pondering several templates, I decided to go au naturel. It was very tough to "let go" and let it stay asymmetrical. 20170723_135945.jpg 20170723_135959.jpg 20170723_140011.jpg 20170723_143209.jpg 20170723_143311.jpg 20170723_143324.jpg 20170718_164514.jpg I spent much more time sanding (to 1000) than shaping.
    One coat BLO, 1 coat tung oil, 2 coats paste wax:

      Lovely fork and great work. Cool butt cap. I puzzled about the asymmetry for a while. I think you hoped the heartwood rings would match on both forks. I think you made a good call.
      Viva la difference!

      That came out really sweet brother. Mesquite is some tuff material. I love the way the core showed up and the butt cap is awesome.

      Awesome looking natty. The core showing through on top of that big blue butt rocks.

      I agree, that Mequite is tougher than a woodpecker's lips.

      Great job on it, Diablo!!!
