    Latest natural and last one for a while. (I'm gonna try my hand at micartas and boardcuts) El Halcón is made from a mango fork from my parents rental property, a bamboo endcap, and Tung oil. Filed some grooves and burned a design in them since it worked out well last time, then sanded up to 1200 grit so it's nice and smooth.
    I'll post some more pics tomorrow, it's drying right now so I don't wanna move it around to much, let me know what you think.

    Wow!

    Hey fellow builder,

    This slingshot is really nice!
    It has avery uniqe design I never saw before,
    yet it seems familiar - could be a true djungle-hunter,
    or from the innuit (although for them rubber would never work).
    Great work! - thanks for posting!

    Best regards!

    Be

    And I bet it's hard to get mango trees to live up there

    Looks good so far, I'd like to see some closer photos of the detail work after it's had a chance to dry.

    The camera I use to take pictures is on my tablet, which for some reason only has a front facing selfie-cam. That makes it harder but I'll do what I can withak, hopefully I'll be able to get a pic of the El Camino in there too for Bill.

    On another note does anyone have any good pouch templates? I just got 1lb of leather scrap to make pouches but I don't know how to make a nice pouch.
