Canopus offers a weighted 5-tine tapestry fork with 1 1/4″ width head. A hidden internal cavity behind the tines contains lead shot in a matrix of epoxy. Weighs about 7.2 oz., overall length about 10″. Woods commonly used for these tools are bird’s eye maple, tiger maple, black walnut, and curly white oak. There is a half-oval relief carving on top. Sanded to 2000-grit with 10 coats of finish (sealer shellac, oil-based urethane, and carnauba wax). Spaces in-between tines also sanded to remove machine marks, and finished for ease of operation.
