    Hello guys<br><br>No more than two weeks ago I stumbled upon a YouTube video of Joerg. The quality of his presentations, the minimalistic, well thought out design of many of his slingshots along with his pure passion for his hobby made a very positive impression on me. <br>My last slingshot was made decades ago out of an orange tree branch and some bicycle tyre rubber... Having watched all of Joerg videos I feel it's time for an upgrade, and therefore I joined this cool channel of yours to publish my efforts as well as see the fine craftings of all the other members.<br><br>Mit Freundlichen Grussen<br><br>Theodor

    Welcome, Theodor!<br><br>You don't happen to have two or three chunky orange tree forks lying around, maybe? If so, I am willing to make slingshots from them and return one to you in exchange for the forks. <br><br>Never worked with orange wood.<br><br>

    Yes Joerg that would be a great honor for me! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28"><br><br>Orange trees are normally pruned at spring-time, but it will be no problem to prune some of them a little earlier!<br><br>I will arrange so that the forks are thick and wide enough for the moorhammer...<br><br>Good luck on your presentation at the States by the way!<br><br>PS<br>Ich bin auch Deutschsprachig, aber ich bevorzuge im Englisch zu schreiben. (es ist einfacher für mich)<br><br>mfg<br>Theodor
