    This is my 6th slingshot. I made it for a coworker. It's a lot like my last one except I used hickory instead of oak. Gave it to him this morning and he seemed happy with it. It was hard to hand it over though after I'd made it. Lol. Hope he enjoys it.

    I actually meant to put a note about that. Yes the lighting is different in the 2 pictures. I would have preferred natural lighting but it's kind of a cloudy gloomy day today.

    Looks awesome! I'm sure your co-worker will enjoy it. I know it is hard to give up one of your babies isn't it? lol

    It sure is. I'm working on one for another guy right now. I think I'm liking how it's turning out a bit too much. Lol

    That is very nice! I like the cross-grain lamination. When I first seen the purple/pink I thought of the heartwood of certain Lilac species.

    It sucks because you want to do your best work all the time but the problem with that is your best work keeps getting better and better. lol It is a never ending conundrum. To give your best work away? or to keep it for yourself?:D

    P.S. I would love to see a pic of the new one :)

    In due time. Lol. :) Got started on it last night. It's a natural fork and I'm still getting it shaped.
