    The addiction continues. This one is another two glues with a center seem with some leftover from another slingshot I but. It's 3.5 inches across the top and a little over 5 tall. This is my new favorite. I'm going to make another like this with Acacia when I get home. Hope you likey!

    No disrespect but that's not a PFS, it's too wide and the fork gap is too big. What you have is a purty lil intermediate. I love walnut, especially claro, but it's too expensive to buy a thick peice. I think a little rlo would make it so beautifull, it brings out the natural warm tones of walnut.
    cheers

    Well, whatever it is, it's my new favorite :) I put some BLO on it but my patience was running low and I really wanted to shoot it. When I get back home I may just let it soak for a few days for more protection and some shine. I like my little pickle forks but this shape fits my hand way better. This will probably turn into my standard style to build from

    I went to a wedding today with my wife and here was this huge tree in the middle of all the chairs. I couldn't figure out what it was and I saw a little sign that said " Black Walnut," I was thinking I could make a couple thousand slingshots with that. I had to share. Thanks for all the kind words

    Well, stay tuned. I'll probably make another tomorrow. It'll either be acacia or cedar. Oh the possibilities!
