Greetings forks!

I present to you an oak fork named "QUIMBAYA".

I have carved this for my friend maomao. A gift :wave:
It is finished with dark stain and mellow beeswax.

In the handle is a 200 pesos Columbian coin given to me by maomao.
The coin was lightly glued in the recession and then a clear epoxy poured over and allowed to level and harden overnight.

Fact of the day- Maomao is Columbian.

I love this coin, it displays artwork from early Columbian 1st century folk known as the Quimbaya.

and to maomao - eatchoface bichoface!!! :neener:

Very well made, I like the shape you gave her and, of course, the colour and the grain of the wood.

Thanks newcon, mikenjoy, jazz, sofreto and mrpaint! Mike, the stain is a red oak stain. Can't remember by what brand. Not at the shop now... It's a basic red oak stain.

Nice work and very unique. Looks like a great rock chucker and the fork is low enough to apply some leverage too.
