Theodore from Crete sent me some great natural forks from orange trees.
The web is full of information about oranges (the fruit), but there is really nothing about the wood from those trees. So I did not know what to expect.
I started to work on this frame - probably the smalles Theodore sent :)
First, I sketched out the frame.
Sawed it out!
After the rounding and rough sanding (80 grit), the orange-yellow color came out! I was amazed as well as curious. How would this end up?
Here is the polished frame. I can't believe the color! Will be interesting to see how it ripens over the next few days.
