Here's the log I cut it out of:
That's handsawn :p I bet I tore lots of muscle fiber while cutting that :D
And this is what the grain looked like when the log was split, which is why I saved it for the to-make-things-with pile (which in reality consists of a single log).
I sanded each side of that chunk up above on the belt sander, then cut out the shape with a hand jigsaw.
I used a chisel to make the curved face of the top of the comb, I also used the sander to enhance the curve of the whole thing.
And after a few hours of work, here's what it looked like!
And here it is in action:
I'm really much happier with the way this one turned out than the last one.
This picture kind of shows the curve of the fork.
