    A friend of mine wanted a beginner's version of te Moorhammer design. I made a wide forked frame (12 cm clearance between the fork tips). <br><br>He wanted blond wood, and I chose Medang burlwood, from Cambodia I think. The wood is amazing - because of the 3D effects. If you move and tilt the piece slightly, under a good light, the changing effects are stunning. <br><br>Multiplex core. Linseed oil finish.<br><br><img src="http://i75.servimg.com/u/f75/16/32/46/92/medang10.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i75.servimg.com/u/f75/16/32/46/92/medang11.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i75.servimg.com/u/f75/16/32/46/92/medang12.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    Ever time starting to build a new slingshot, I said to me, let´s make a Moorhammer.<br>I love the design, and I am so curious how it will shoot, that next time I will<br>build one by myself. <br><br>If you allow me to use your design? <br><br><br>Very nice and outstanding work&hellip;

    Sure, go ahead and try it! But you have been warned... once you have shot a Moorhammer, you won't likely want to go back to any other design.

    Absolutely stunning! Even though I am a fan of your "bad ass" weapons, I personally enjoy your slingshot creations even more. They are incredible works of art! <br>By the way, congratulations on being invited to the Witch Hunter movie premiere! You and the Mrs looked like movie stars! I just wish I was there to get YOUR autograph! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> I've also always wondered, where do you find the time to do all the things you do (create weapons, carve slingshots, record videos, run a business, etc..)? I think a documentary on a typical Joerg Sprave day would be a great idea for a future video. Cheers!
