    I go collecting every winter , finding a dozen forks or so out in the parks nearby. I only spent about an hour putting this one together. This is the first new slingshot I have completed this year, glad I spent an hour or so in the shed on this rainy day. I cut the forks to suit a side...

    Hi Guys, there are three more attempts from the past few days to build a natural slingshot that fit's to me. The wooden "V" is a gripless fork for shooting only in thumb & finger support style, I gave her strong bands for a strong guy. The second named Eagle, because the heck it is - isn't it...

    Sour cherry natural vs bamboo wood, this one sat on the shelf for 3 months, but last week I had the courage to finish it. I got the fork a year ago from a friend's garden, it was already dried.

    Hello brothers and sisters :) After a loong loong time I finally finished a slingshot :) Its based on my Spindle cicatrix frame, only with an added 'stinger' at the bottom, so it can be used as a self-defense stabber. So it resembled a wasp, so that's what we will call this frame :)...

    Hi. I've been skulking around for a long while looking at natural shooters to get some design ideas and try my hand at making a few... luckily I live right next to an old golf course so it has bunch of exotic and local trees making the trail around it practically an arboretum... I cut a few...

    Hi folks, Here I have my latest build, made from the topmost fork of a fallen tree I came across after an autumn storm. The bark was completely gone and the wood was whithered to a dark grey, as can be seen in the first picture. So, as per usual, I have no clue what kind of tree it was. This...

    Hey guys! Yeasterday I read this quote by Bert, in which he suggested Obl1v1Aus to build a sled... And then I got an Idea! :) Such a sled is perfect for giving almost every imaginable shape two parallel surfaces! - also forks. Then I changed Bert's Idea of a screw against two nails. Why...

    hey guys.. ..while joking around with some knive-building-tests over the last days and trying to colorize blades in different ways, i put some natural wood into vinegar for fun, and it came out very nice.. a blue-grey tint which goes trough to the core and brings out the grain.. left it in...
