Lucet Fork
« on: March 15, 2012, 11:37:55 AM »
I received a commission to make a chap a Lucet fork for his wife, the fork is made from Ash and features some absolutely gorgeous grain patterns.





If you are unsure what a Lucet is, then have a read of this post that i made about them back on October last year, they have a fascinating history and are very therapeutic to use.

I still have some work to do to finish it off, before giving it a few coats of beeswax polish and mailing it off to the chap who commissioned it.

Just watched the video you linked in your blog. Neat stuff!

It's amazing how it just uses a single strand to make a much thicker cord.

pretty cool isnt it?

I know what you mean about a stain to bring the grain up, but i figure time and use will do that with oils from the users hand

I was lost until I watched the video, that is very cool!  I never could have imagined something like that would make cordage in such a manner.  I really liked the mixed colors, but the thing that got me the most is it turns out SQUARE!
