    Great forks! If you re unsure of what to do with the third fork, I may suggest looking up one of the tutorials for carving a shooter from a natural.
    "Failure is always an option" has a great tutorial on his YouTube channel. Highly recommend that. Joerg also has one, if I remember correctly. Both will help give you some ideas at least.

    Make a hammer grip or look at The art of weapons' how to make a laminate slingshot if you have any plywood left

    I think those look really good. As already mentioned, there's some really good videos to check out. Take your time and make your fork work for you.

    I just happen to love just about everything Andy (Doberman Knives) does... So I'm posting his first vid tutorial which you might wanna check out along with all the others if you're working with just basic hand tools. BTW, tokSick does exceptional work with just simple hand tools as well.

    Here ya go. The first one. Hope it's helpful! Don't forget to say Hi! to kitty Boris.

    Thanks! I also love it!
    Feels great in the hand when you holding it! I will attach a butterfly bandset to it!
