Thanks for the info Jason. I've snapped tines off trying for something like that. I'll try the torch next time.

I shaped the fork using a propane torch and a pair of needle nose pliers.

Nice Build

Very nice! What's the secret to those nice tight curls on the fork?

Good idea.  I bet you could get enough off the dipstick to do the job.   Thanks!

Thanks. Used engine oil is my finish/stain of choice.

Me too.  And you are a great hand with a fork!

Awesome! Love the distress look! What kind of stain/finish did you use?
