    Today, coming home from picking up Fable, we saw the neighbors cutting down branches on their big tree. My husband walked over with me and asked if we could possibly take a fork if we saw one, and he said sure. Well, this is what I found. I think this will be my dad's future slingshot. :D

    I'm thinking it's oak.

    I have several months to work on it, so for now, it will stay in a dry room. Then, I'll do the microwave drying like I did with my first.

    That's real nice!

    I saw a fork today in a branch that looked like it had been on the ground a while. It had some splits but I may grab it tomorrow and see if it's still strong.

    That's a nice fork, plenty of wood to work with there. Visualize and attack!

    Why? I didn't have to with my first one. (Legitimate curiosity).

    Now you are ready to start. I heard, that your tools are at home. The only thing to do now is, to bring this nice fork and the tools together.
