    Hey everyone Got another one i carved from a natural rather chunky Oak fork.
    with a little yew laminate on the handle.
    the handle is very comfortable and reminded me of the abdomen of a hornet, hens the name :D. (ive lately been trying to photograph them) :D

    anyway this slingshot feels awesome to shoot!!!
    and even though its not well seen in the pics oak is a beautiful wood!!!

    It's a serious shooter! Nice carving, professional work! the black notch gives a nice touch, and you managed to put it right in the midle of the forks. the tip detail makes the whole thing perfect!

    Excellent work! Love how clean and sharp the lines are when viewing it head-on! And I agree, oak is probably my favorite wood as well.
    I'm glad there are no hornets of that size here, I would go and get the shotgun for sure!:D

    Better than Decent! I'm kindo' OCD about sanding and finish, but this is very nice. Bandslaps like a bitch without heavy ammo I bet.
