    Hello Guys, <br><br>today I proudly present my first Hammerhead slingshot. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cool.gif" alt="Cool" longdesc="6"><br><br>I´m really happy about the result! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br>I think this is a really difficult desingn. I took many hours of sawing, rasping, filing and sanding it to get a smooth finish and a nice look...<br><br>here are some pics <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15"><br><br><br><a href="http://www.image-load.net/" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://www.image-load.net/users/JimmyPage84/Slingshots/20120726_145111.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><br><a href="http://www.image-load.net/" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://www.image-load.net/users/JimmyPage84/Slingshots/20120726_145126.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><br><a href="http://www.image-load.net/" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://www.image-load.net/users/JimmyPage84/Slingshots/20120726_145227.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><br>I hope you like it! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br>

    Very beautiful slingshot. perfect symmetrical design and patterns. After oiling and varnishing, the contrast will be more good.

    <br><br>@ketansa:<br>It has already the final finish. it is oiled up with lineseedoil. <br>I really like it in combination with this wood. <br>the wood texture gets a kind of 3D effect when its oiled and it still feels very natural when you hold it... <br><br><br>...at last i´m properly amazed! its a very good looking an comfortable design. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br>Thanks to Jörg for sharing it. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28"><br><br><br>

    <span class="postbody"><br><br><br>Thats great then <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> . I understand the 3D effect, you must be talking about the golden moonstone like shining visual effect that you see deep into the surface when you move the slingshot in the light.<br>Lets see how it shoots.</span>
