A pair of wooden forks for tossing and serving salads. A piece of boekenhout measuring 60 x 7 x 2.3 cm was mounted on the outboard setup of my lathe with a faceplate. The concave curve of the forks was shaped and as I cannot get the toolrest behind the lathe head, I reversed the piece of wood on the faceplate and formed the convex curve of the fork. The tines were cut on a table saw using a jig to hold each end upright and against the fence. Then, after cutting the piece in half, I cut away some waste wood on the bandsaw.The tines were lightly held in a chuck and a rotating tailstock positioned to hold the opposite end. The handle was turned to a cylinder and then shaped and blended to the tines. The handle was sanded on the lathe and the tines by hand.
