    my dear friend Alfredo in Madrid sent me a lovely Boxwood fork. Just finished carving it and will get it banded up today. It's only had one coat of Danish Oil but Box is so hard that is probably all it needs. Just a quick rub with beeswax and we're done.

    That is beautiful.
    You make it sound entirely too easy.
    I admire your clean, precise knifework.

    Thanks guys...I really appreciate your feedback.

    I've just put my last bit of Linatex on it (singles) and it feels good to shoot.

    (except the Linatex snapped after half a dozen shots :( will have to try something else )

    Really beautiful carving work Ruthie, well done. That must take a considerable amount of time and patience.

    It has a paisley look that is very soothing.. it masks the deadly nature within. Typical of Ruthie.

    Thanks for the lovely feedback guys. It is very much appreciated.

    The shooter is now on its THIRD set of rubber. The natural latex band and the Linatex both snapped pretty quickly so it's on looped tubes now

    When I saw your pictures of your carving knives with your added carved decorative handles I wondered if you had ever thought about extending that to your slingshots. You did, and it's great!
