    Okay guys, after finishing my first homemade carving knife, what's the next step? Carve a slinger of coarse! Unfortunately this one is promised to my buddy so I don't get to keep it. He picked this fork out the other day so it's his. I'm not sure what kind of wood it is but I think it turned out great. I just sent him the picture and he's excited. I carved it to fit and flattened out the forks a little. I then sanded it down, soaked in BLO and finished with CA glue. Just killed a can so I think it's a winner!

    Looks great BigHaze. That's a nice natural, looks like the carving knife worked very well. I like the flattened forks. Nice work.

    Nice cup and done to show off the grain with a brilliant finish. First class.

    Thanks guys! I'm really happy with how this turned out. I don't really want to give it up but how many slingshots do I really need? :) My wife went out of town tonight so I took the liberty of setting a large Rubbermaid container in front of my recliner and started carving one for me. I used my file knife to remove the bark and the little carver for detail. So hopefully I'll have another to share tomorrow

    :) I gave it to my buddy this morning and he was very happy with it. I came in to work early this morning and fallout finished up the other one I carved last night. Shes taking a bath right now so I'll post some pictures up at lunchtime.
