I found this walnut fork on a downed limb back in the woods. I almost left it there, because when I cut it, most of the wood was punky. I could push a thumbnail into it easily.
But the heartood looked good, and that was enough to lug it home and start trimming with a hatchet to see what was workable.
The rasp did the shaping. Eventually I thought I saw a Feihu in the heartwood and went for that.
Now I need to band her up!
Thanks for looking!
