    <div>Yes but she likes it that rough? For a lady I would give it the whole rundown from 40-2000 grit and polish it up nice . You never know what uses it may find... <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_surprised.gif" alt="Surprised" longdesc="4">

    Good slingshot, I would also remove the bark. Although the natural look is also nice. classic.

    The bark was left on for a somewhat camo effect/natural look... She loves it rough <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9"> And It fits her hand very well (she is 5"9)<br><br>It's only my first one, There will be plenty of smooth and stained slingshots coming.. I want a whole arsenal of different badass slings.

    I wonder how clear finishes do over bark. Like if you made it thick enough to be smooth while still retaining the look of the bark. I wonder if there is a way to make it work.

    Maybe I will test your theory, sounds like It could be a very cool effect
