    Hey guys,<br>I started a new slingshot today, i used one of my unknown wood forks and a random design i just drew up from nothing.<br>I carved it with my brusletto knife and a saw for the roughest work.<br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=206&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i77.servimg.com/u/f77/17/31/63/59/imag0517.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br>Sorry for dark pic, with the flash on it would look glowing.<br><br>It is now laying on the fireplace to dry, and no cracks so far! Yay!<br>I'll work further on it tomorrow, and i'll also post an update than.<br>

    <div>Do you have 2 thumbs on your left hand? I saw an extra groove drawn on there. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">

    So, another hour in my workshop and a lot of dust later, i finished it!<br>I filed into a allmost precise fitting ergo shape and sanded it smooth, after that i brushed on some normal olive oil.<br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=209&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i77.servimg.com/u/f77/17/31/63/59/imag0520.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=210&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i77.servimg.com/u/f77/17/31/63/59/imag0521.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=211&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i77.servimg.com/u/f77/17/31/63/59/imag0522.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=212&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i77.servimg.com/u/f77/17/31/63/59/imag0523.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=213&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i77.servimg.com/u/f77/17/31/63/59/imag0524.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=214&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i77.servimg.com/u/f77/17/31/63/59/imag0525.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br>

    Very nice little shooter!!! I also think it is nice, that you did not cut the finger grooves too deep. I still can not choose, when I build a new one, to do that - or not. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_redface.gif" alt="Embarassed" longdesc="10"><br><br>I have not seen many of your slingshots, but the desing looks almost like a mixture of a normal slingshot and a PFS. Very nice for the jackets or pants pocket.<br><br>great work...

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>you are dead on the spot, i like the low and narrow forks of the PFS an allmost all of my slingshots are pocket size, it just feels right, no extra weight and ultra hight forks that can get in the way.<br><br>i would say, just try finger grooves once, they can make some slingshots twice as comfortable, but i would choose a slingshot that does not have a clear line in it, i mean, a flippinout axiom would not look too good with finger grooves, because it has its beaty in the curved lines.<br></span>
