    Today I found this fork, not sure on the wood type. If u don't count the varnish drying time it has about 2 minutes work in it, I found it relatively symmetrical with no bark and perfectly smooth, has some splaying too. It is kitted out with some butterfly bands made from generic rubber I found real cheap here in Ireland. They are 30 cm long with 3/4 to 1/2 inch taper. Let me know what you think, and you guys post about your fastest made slingshot :)

    Ps. The varnish I use dries in about 5 mins beside the fire anyway,

    The only sports equipment that grows on trees! Nice. Most folks (me) get carried away working a fork. Good cuts on the forks.
