    Hi guys. Here's my laatest completed slingshot. It's a natural hickory fork. One of a few I posted in an earlier thread. He commissioned one a few days ago and this is what I came up with for him. The black spots are actually small holes from bark beetles. I kinda like them. I showed him the uncompleted version of this yesterday and he seemed to like them too. Just gotta put some bands on tomorrow and it's ready to hand over. :)

    Really nice work on that fork. I agree, I like the holes too. 'Perfect' forks are nice to find, but I'm finding more and more when I find these kinds of surprises under the bark, I get excited. I'm sure your boss will love it.

    Nice I really like these hickory naturals I've been seeing too bad there's none of that in my neck of the woods. Keep up your good work drew

    Have you seen the pics I take? My only camera is a reverse mounted "selfie cam" taking pics is hard to do when you can't even see the screen!
