    I did not make this, but a friend made it for me. It is one of my most beautiful slingshots and also most comfortable to shoot with, like a luxury sedan...<br><br><img src="http://i796.photobucket.com/albums/yy242/p1pe09/Slingshots/jskeen%20chalice/front-1.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Nice contrast with the Desert Ironwood palm swells, don't you think?<br><br><img src="http://i796.photobucket.com/albums/yy242/p1pe09/Slingshots/jskeen%20chalice/oblique.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://i796.photobucket.com/albums/yy242/p1pe09/Slingshots/jskeen%20chalice/DSC02762.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Shoots like a dream.

    O I bet that thing is a good shooter, it looks like it would be an epic thumb and forefinger gripper for me... I plan on making something similar now though <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"> Thanks <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28">

    Very nice one. A classic shape and the desert wood palmswell is amazing. :cool:

    That is a beautiful slingshot. The palmswell provides a very nice contrast against the lighter wood of the fork. I really like the size too, not too large, not too small.

    I was just thinking yesterday about a pecan fork. We have some old pecan trees at work that I'm going to scout next week for some forks. That one you have is a beauty!!

    Good to see you here Sir. A beautiful interpretation of your design. To anyone that does not know, dayhiker is a fine designer, an excellent craftsman, an asset to the slingshot community in general and an all-around good guy.
