It was time to make another slingshot.<br><br>It is a mix between the Howitzer (fork measurements) and the Moorhammer (handle).<br><br>This time, I used palm wood for the handle, but it is laminated sideways to the multiplex core. I think the beauty of the palm wood comes out better this way. The palm wood has two sides, the outer part is harder and darker than the inner part. I retained that difference, so the two plates aren't alike.<br><br><br><div style="margin:auto;text-align:center;width:100%">

Very Very sexy slingshot...<br><br>And if you are looking for free exotic woods..., why not type free wood samples into google and see what you can come up with? I know flooring companies are eager to get wood into potential customers hands, so much so that some send free samples, what you do with them while evaluating their quality are your business...
