    This slingshot started as a fork that i found with my little son in his baby-coach. I returned with a saw and while he was sleeping, it cut the branch!<br>Then microwaving, rasping, etc. etc. And the final result is at the pictures. I like the spape. It's loosely based on a hammerhead shape I think. And this slingshot is the first one I tried with TBG. It's big difference, really. At first I was almost afraid to pul the pouch to my cheek because the fork might crack (just in my mind <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15"> ). Now, much better..<br>I'm a little bit disappointed with the color. The white (young) wood is almost white and the linseed oil caused the wood to look dull. So I sanded it again and used bees wax. Nothing special, I know, but I'm glad I finished it <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15"> It took me more than a month.<br><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=49&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i42.servimg.com/u/f42/17/72/96/22/2012-123.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=50&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i42.servimg.com/u/f42/17/72/96/22/2012-124.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=51&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i42.servimg.com/u/f42/17/72/96/22/2012-125.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=52&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i42.servimg.com/u/f42/17/72/96/22/2012-126.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=53&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i42.servimg.com/u/f42/17/72/96/22/2012-127.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a>
