    Great looking stuff, man. I wish I'd been capable of that kind of workmanship at your age. I think I ruined pretty much everything I touched with a tool back then (lol). Some of the stuff you younger guys are making is amazing and gives me real hope for the future of the slingshot hobby.

    Nicely shaped and finish SS but when you say it's ebony - it isn't! Be careful when you are buying ebony as the true ebony commands a high price and nowadays because the demand for it is high quite afew 'other' woods are being sold as ebony. Ask the supplier for the latin name, it should be from the genus Diospyros.

    valkerie: My teacher said it was ebony:scratch: And if its ebony or not is not really important to me, as long as I can use the slingshot for shooting:D<br><br>My sentiments exactly - as long as it shoots thats great. <br><br>I just wanted to let you know because if you ever make one that is stressing the materials close to their limits it's important to know what your material is and what said material can take! Anyway now you can teach your teacher something.<img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15">
