    I saw some pure woodwork stuff lately and the first thing that came to my mind was: "It looks so super sweet to combine wood and wood...why do i always have metal in there somewhere? I have a fresh bottle of woodglue, still unopened...grrr...nuff of epoxy"

    I needed a break somehow...had no Slingshot in my mind, so i started thinking...and came up with an Ammo Dispenser.

    Normally it´s enough for me to carry the Ammo just in my Pocket. I take at least 100 Balls at a time, so some sort of "normal" Dispenser would be too small for me...and since i wanted to do something in "pure-wood" so badly and i wanted it to be finished in one day...i made something with the idea to fit my "Tactical-Plus" somehow.

    https://www.theslingshotforum.com/f5/tactical-plus-28459/

    Again, no big deal in finishing or Detail, i just wanted it to be functional! Sanded to 240 Grit, oiled with BLO after staining it, thats all.

    Just for fun (which makes it no longer amidextrous lol) i added an inlay made from Olive, Walnut-Burl and Bookmatched Zebrano.

    You can open the lit and it holds 77 12mm steel Balls. There is a small Neodym-Magnet in the snout which holds the first Ball in place. There is also a Slot in the Back so you can attach it to your Belt.

    Haven´t tried it "in the field" yet, but it works fine in my Livingroom :p

    Hope you like it. Now i can go back to Metal<--->Wood again!

    Cheers

    Ich bin sehr beidrukt damit. Seht ganz toll aus.

    I hope I spelled beidrukt correctly, if has been a while since I have had to write any German.

    Beautiful artistry again Antraxx. The colors work so well together. And the inlay is so nicely executed. The shape reminds me a bit of the tape measure I wore on my work belt for many years. And, as usual, great photography - composition, lighting, depth of field, sharpness, contrast and saturation. All beautiful.

    Great!!! I already see some variations soon. Imagine, a "slingshot shaped" ammo clip... or a "slingshot shaped buckle belt" ammo clip... or...
    Nice job Antraxx!
