Wooden fan

This is something I've been playing with this afternoon, the fan is made from a  single piece of wood, no joints, glue etc, it's all from the same piece of wood and it's all in one piece, this one is a bit rough, to be frank i really cocked it up, as i didn't taper the wood below the fan at all and the feathers are a way too thick, which is why some of them cracked as i bent them into position, i know where i have gone wrong, so next time i will be aware of it and will therefore be in a position to do something about it.

I have to thank Sean Hellman for the inspiration to give this a go, i have a good stock of suitable wood for this in the wood pile at the moment, so all being well i will get a few more made this weekend and practice the skill.
