    <br>I just received a beautiful surprise from Ryan Wigglesworth, one of my esteemed forum members...<br><br>What a great natural! Heavily sculpted, just the way I like it. It feels wonderful in my hand. Hard to say what kind of wood that is, could be ash or dogwood. <br><br>Thanks, Ryan! A great gift and a wonderful new piece of my collection.

    This is a gift to thank you for all you have done for others, whether you know it or not you have touched many peoples lives in significant ways <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br><br>This was (below) however the original slingshot that I designed just for you, the handle was from a tape gun and the forks are from a part of a machine at my work. The only problem is that the wood was spalted and well it was light and weak, I dropped it while working on it and a fork snapped off. I glued it, it is now stronger than ever, but I felt that it wasnt gonna be up to snuff for Joerg (ie: I figured it wouldnt handle the load Joerg could put on it)<br><br>Originally I tried to make a replica of the Cougar you sent me, but the wood is too light, then this one but it wasnt good enough, so I settled on the one I was making prior to that, it doesnt have a name, although it reminds me and some friends of a tendon! Glad you have it, glad you like it, and I hope you will think of the positive way you have affected many other people on the planet when you hold it <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br>Merry Christmas Joerg!
