    Hey guys this is my latest work with naturals!

    They are both made for the right hand

    The first one is made from a bushlike tree we call here in Greece Skinos (Many similarities with Myrtle)

    It is already on its way to a new home!

    The second one is from olivewood! Soon will be added to my etsy store.

    I cut these out with my bandsaw, It was my first go! I am really pleased with the result!

    I hope you like them, Thanks!

    As usual Saderath, they look great! Shouldn't you be in school or something? Just kidding! Keep on making those wonderful slingshots!

    Haha school? I finished with my education years ago :D
    Slingshots are the thing i love to do!
    As i have too much time on my hands that is what i spend it on, it relaxes me and takes my mind off any problems
    I have been unemployed for so long now because the economy in greece is going worse by the day with the exception of the odd job here and there, selling 1-2 slingshots a month helps me go by!

    So expect to see many many more because i
    will probably never stop making them :D

    [​IMG] Very, very fine craftsmanship, Saderath.

    Lovely woods and both beautifully shaped and finished. Gorgeous naturals. But oh boy! I really love the delicate curved canting on the one. It makes my hand tingle looking at it -- if that makes any sense at all to anybody. [​IMG]

    that's truly amazing. i bet by using the bandsaw you get great symmetry and great lines. they are some fine pieces of work, and would be a great addition to any collection.

    keep up the great work!
    love the colours from that skinos, is it a hard and dense wood? or nice and light?

    I am used to working with Olivewood which is really hard and dense so comparing it with that it is a medium in the category of Myrtle and Koumaria!

    These are beautiful. I like the cant in the forks. I recently found a fork with a natural cant in it and wondered how it would work out. Now I definitely want to try it. Great work.
