Here are a few of my first exotic forks after I finished them. The one on the right, made from lacy sycamore, started out with three prongs but the outer two were weak and I removed them and made it into a stick instead of a comb.

I switched to using tung oil as a finish for my pieces and I like it much better than the krylon crystal coat.

Incredible work! I’d love to see a “how-to” on this.

beautiful! same as with the other projects….you may have found a niche here i think, if they get placed right i’m sure you could be back-ordered for a while, then the price goes up. Good luck with the sales!

Very pretty and I could see a couple different uses for them.

Thank you all!

Bill Hall I would love to know how to make a “how-to” for this! lol I am still trying to figure this board out and with the holidays looming, I’ve not got time to study it closely. I will try to figure it out and make a “how to”. I would really love to see what y’all would come up with.

Chris Cunanan I hope I did find a niche. I’ve searched online and found all sorts of hair forks and sticks, but none quite like mine. :) I’m a slow worker and this is just a hobby, so I’m just having a blast making them and seeing how others respond to them. :) Give me that warm and fuzzy. :D

jockmike2 I think they could be used for shawl pins, some of them letter openers, others… weapons. :D
