    Wow, that's just beautiful. It's amazing to me how folks can take a few pieces of raw wood and turn out such a work of art. Enjoy that lovely PFS Arturo. Actually, I guess you already are enjoying it ;)

    Thank you very much guys ! Randy is not a member here which makes my joy incomplete, moreover when I recently leaved the SSF ... I will open the last thread there to let the nice fellows and friends there credit his awesome work and his generosity ...
    Cheers

    Hi Arturo,
    I joined up over here so I could keep in touch. Thanks for making the shooting videos. I really enjoy watching you shoot. Your slingshot is ebony,holly stripes with blackwood in the middle and amboyna burl on the bottom with a bubinga core. I hope you have lots of fun shooting her!

    Thank you very much Randy for the explanation and joining ! I am sure your awesome work will be admired here as you deserve my friend, very nice fellows and a lot of miscellaneous topic to talk on, even sometimes the "hijacker squad" irrupts when things "goes ugly" with a whole variety of cooking recipes ! lol ! ...
    the PickeBone is fantastic not only a delight for my eyes, also a very good shooter ... welcome my friend !
    Cheers

    I got an old engraving machine from a trophy business. They all use computer driven engravers now. I used the letters that came with it to make a master template. I had to turn a k upside down and backwards to make my mark. Then I used the new template to put the mark on the slingshot. It is a cutter like a router bit so cuts the same. Now I can use the panto-graph to make the mark as big or small as I like and cut it on the slingshot. Also will cut in aluminium or bronze and brass. Hope this is helpful.
