help making a fork

Hi! i’m using this tutorial
http://www.blender.org/modules/documentation/htmlI/x9810.html
for making a fork but it says that it started subdivindig a plane (to make the ugly fork of Fig 41) buy i can’t do it, how does he subdivide a plane and gets that? :expressionless:
I did it just adding vertices but before that i have to do the faces too, so it can’t be like that

First you have to go into edit mode and then press the subdivide button, then you get more polys… but you might have to delete vertices and faces to get the right shape if i remember correctly (from when i did the tut myself…) so that’s maybe the reason that you get a different shape…just delete some pieces of the subdiveded plane…
