    I started with a 1/4 inch thick plank of Poplar craft board purchased from Lowes. These do not require use of a plane, [but I do use a band sander to take off all edges and some thickness around the tines].
    then I drew them freehand. I did cut with a band saw. But I wish I had purchased a jig saw instead. I will make more and color them my usual colors to match my clothes including blues and turquois. I have discovered that The forks with wider tops than tines hold incredibly well. So I am making more of those. Will post at a later date.
