"You are completely crazy... and have a lot of spare time...!": it's what my friends and my parents said when they saw my last creation... the fork belt buckle!

For the madness I don't know what to say... probably they're right! Tongue For the spare time.. well.. it's the lack of will of studying, I guess! I'm justified! Eheheh!

So, I made this for a more-crazy friend of mine... that asked a belt buckle since I started to work with forks, and he liked that!
I used a military belt, on which I pasted a big fork for the roast that I've bent and decorated!
If for the normal fork I used a blowtorch and pincers to cut off the handle.. here I had to ask to my dad to help me using the buzz saw (disk saw)! It was funny! Tongue
I decorated the fork with copper wire and a little black bead!









Really I'm not completely satisfied with the result because the prongs were extremely hard and I've done a lot of marks on them! But, it's ok... it's the first attempt... I'm confident!

Let me know what you think about!
Thanks for looking!!

You could always use a rotary tool (Dremel is a name brand) and use the grinding stone to give it neat swirls/lines to cover up the marks made..  Very Cool!
