    That's a nice piece of work there! The black walnut looks great against the aluminum core. I really like the design too. I think your customer is going to be very pleased with this one.

    Beautiful! I love the wood! It would look great with a red-ish wood, Don't you think? or purple heart. God, i have to buy more exotic coloured woods!

    nice work!! but with a slingshot made out of pure black walnut is something you should be careful with. black walnut is a very week wood! even a thick branch can be broken with bare hands

    +1000! Walnut of any kind is plenty strong. And where does a kid get off telling one of the most talented builders I know of how to build a slingy?
    TP, that's another example of your high end talent. I absolutely love it. The shape on the tips is very original, quite stylish.
