      Then start working it down to final shape, and considering wood character. This particular one was kinda stringy so I didn't want to sharp of lines.

      Check alignment and fit. Start with a finer file to add finishing touches like concave fork end IMG_20200926_121924.jpg

      Very nice!! We have lots of Serviceberry here, I love the fruit but it's hit or miss from year to year whether they produce or not.

      Thanks. Serviceberry is hit or miss here too. It is about the tastiest native berry we have in NV though. Pretty cool wood to work with if you can find a good piece.
