    This little guy was hiding in a maple fork that I almost passed on because it was so short. I almost quit on it a couple of times too. I don't throw anything away anymore, I just toss it into my "maybe - I'll - figure - it - out - later" box.

    Looking good! After seeing what people like Arturo can make from a straight stick I don't think I'll ever throw anything away again!
    Looks like a comfortable, ergonomic little shooter. Nice work :)

    I didn't think I was the only one with an "I'll figure it out later box" :) I've learned you can use just about any piece for something, even if it's just a cap or fork tip. Nice work on that piece, I love the shape and the grain is really beautiful. Nicely done.

    Very nice!

    So maple is good for making slingshots?

    I have a tree right out my back door.

    Thank you all for the kind words an comments! I hate that, "If I had only saved that it would have been perfect for this", feeling. In art school I was told that unevenness and mistakes are what makes your work original and charming. I rely on that often to keep trying. Best to all!

    I knew it!

    - trying to hide is pointless if you´re dealing
    with a slingman which has free acces to tools!

    :)

    Really well done! - thanks for sharing!

    Best regards,

    Be
