    I carved this ergo out of American walnut and went nuts on it sanding an polishing,just wanted to see how far I was willing to take the finish,if I remmber correctly after the sanding was done I soaked it in tung oil for 24hrs than polisher by hand rubbing.I think it look good and I know it shots really accurately.

    Thanks WildBill I design it to fit my very large hands which just about cover it when shooting and is very stable and comfortable in the pinch grip that I like to use.

    I love the walnut and design, very good job! Did you borrow the basic design? No offense but I've seen something like this before but not with the TTF forks.

    A very nice slingshot! Great job on this one. Nice detail in shaping it and the finish looks really good. Well done.

    Well Done! I have seen a similar design, but it lacked the finger stops. Those are classy and what that style needed. A picture of hold and draw please.

    Looks great! I like to tell myself I could do that too if I had the wood. (But that's a lie)
