I recently came into the possession of a lot of forks. Like, 30 or so. I had no idea what to do with them, so I started looking around online. I found lots of cool sculptures and models of animals made out of recycled metal, so I figured I'd give that a shot. While I didn't end up making a giant sculpture of a dragon, I at least had an idea to work with. After a little screwing around I came up with these fork bugs. I made a couple, and they're all unique; since each fork is slightly different, each bug has a different look to it.
Step 1: What You Need:
- A flat piece of metal (to make bending the tines of the fork easier; don't use a file like I did)
- A fork with four tines (prongs)
- A magnet
- Pliers (wrap the pliers in duct tape to keep from marking up the metal)
- A vise
