    Made from willow (google translated. In Sweden its called "Sälg". According to GT a more correct name for this type of wood is Pussy-Willow) <br><br>Made the usual way, sawed and rasped into rough shape, then filed and sanded. I have also oiled wich didnt affect the white parts of the wood but the darker bits came out real good. Unfortunatly it cracked a bit after drying, altough I tought it already was dry enough before I started work with it. Well, you learn by your mistakes (Im going to learn a lot <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"> )! Ill just ignore the crack as its in the handle. I attached pretty weak targetbands, half-butterfly.<br><br><img src="http://i11.servimg.com/u/f11/17/50/40/49/bild0116.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i11.servimg.com/u/f11/17/50/40/49/bild0117.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>It reminds me a bit of some slingy I think Lars made a while ago. So I guess I should say: Thanks Lars! Also it reminds me on the natural I sent to Tysonspapa...<br><br>I think this slingy looks like a Hobbit would carry <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> (Yes I saw The Lord of the Rings recently... <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_rolleyes.gif" alt="Rolling Eyes" longdesc="14"> ) <br><br>Sorry for bad pic-quality, but the good camera is in the hands of my step-mum...

    I like this one a lot. Anything with a nice full size hammer grip i've noticed to be my thing as of late.<br><br>I am sure Ori would be proud to use that in combat against some Worgs and Orcs.

    Thanks! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> I also prefer the Hammergrip-style, but...<br>I must have missed something. Who is Ori?<br><br>EDIT: Okay, I googled it. Damn, I really have to see the Hobbit Movie <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"> )

    I like that thick hammer grip ... looks very comfortable to use it with heavy power bands accurate ...
