Hi, my name is Brian Thornber. I am a 16 year old 11th grade student, interested in becoming a 3D Printing Engineer. I've made an object, to help me improve my skills, and to help other people with every day problems.

Introducing the EasyFork. The EasyFork, is exactly what it sounds like. It's a fork, made for use by people who have trouble gripping onto things, weather heavily disabled, or just mild arthritis, the EasyFork is good for most everything. My inspiration for this was the fact that my grandfather had Parkinson's, and couldn't hold onto his own fork or spoon. With simple full hand grips, it makes it easy to start using the EasyFork, and easy to hold onto it. With a very simple design, it is a very cheap and easy way to help those who have trouble holding onto every day items.
