    Hi Everyone! :)

    My friend Steven Hart is a genius at woodworking how could I resist introducing him to the joys of Catapults/Slingshots? :D

    This is my first design and Steve's first attempt!!!!! Gobsmacking isn't it? This is El Toro called that due to resemblance my doodle/scribble had to the Astrological sign of Taurus. What I didn't expect was Steve's stroke of genius! If you kinda squint you can make out the Bull's ears,horns and nose ring. With the beautiful glossy finish you can almost smell the Bull Sweat LOL!! :D I think he's a very substantial piece of Padauk there are at least 4 gripping methods including index and middle finger support a twist on the usual index only. Banded with 2xtbg in ttf mode he's a powerful beast shots feel absolutely effortless as the grip is so trustworthy I'll be experimenting ;) Hope you folks like him :)

    Yes, indeedy! I sure can see El Toro! No squinting required. [​IMG]

    El Toro is Padauk, and the Baby Bruja is Padauk and... walnut?

    Gorgeous! Both of them.

    Another fine piece of work! And yes, it looks just like a bull. In fact, even with my eyes, if it looked any more like a bull, I reckon I would take off running!:D
    In all seriousness, this is just really great work. Thank you very much for sharing these!

    That is one fantastic slingshot!
