    Hey friends,

    today I've finished a little PFS. Basically it is Dgui's OPFS design (thank you Darrell) with a slight curve. It is a lamination of red oak and ash.
    I am unsure about the bandset right now. Maybe I will try tubes on it.
    Thanks for watching, I hope you like it!

    Very nice, with the curve I like it a lot more than the original one.
    The material mix is beautiful. The lamination reminds me of yin and yang symbol.

    I am sure tubes will look very nice on it. It is a beauty :)

    This is beautiful! I agree, I see the 'yin yang' as well. Great choice in wood, the color of that oak really stood out. Wish I knew how you crafted works like this!

    I don't know what to say... Except that this slingshot has a kind of delicate look and i totally agree with LW, the materials are in perfect harmony.

    Thank you LW. I fact I didn't had a yin and yang symbol in my mind, but you are right. There is something of that in it...
    Thank you Darren :)

    Thanks my friend. Sorry, but I didn't made any photos or the steps, but I've used a scroll saw, a Dremel, a belt grinder, sandpaper, BLO and BW and some bottles of vitamine B to bind the dust ;)

    Thank you green!

    Thanks Raul. The design came in my mind on my vacation, sitting in front of a be.... eeer ice cream watching the people walking around on the market place in Brixen - weird huh?

    Thanks Obelix

    Thank you dolomite

    Thanks CEZ, it has been done on a scroll saw. It is impossible to follow the curves with a bandsaw.

    Thanks my friend. Looking forward to your next projects.

    Thank you Arturo. I am a little bit scared of shooting it. Maybe I will watch a few of your tutorial videos again.;)

    Thanks for your nice comment Artons!

    Like i said in the other Forum, that is a beautiful little shooter.
    Perfect execution and choice of materials and lines.

    I love it!

    Thanks flicks, that kind of cheered me up, I just bought a scroll saw although I was aiming for a bandsaw and now wondering what to do with it:p
