    Hey guys, first of all. Just wanted to say that i hope you're having (had) an awesome holiday season! bring on 2014! :)

    Ok ... back to slingshots. I have been really into making PFS variants lately, and i thought i would share this one i made couple days back. I've only had a chance to shoot it once on xmas but so far, it feels great in the hand.

    The handle material consists of a black G10 liner, Micarta bolsters and Rosewood handles which was kindly given by ash (Thanks man!)
    The rosewood blank i had was pretty darn thick at nearly 10mm. So i had A LOT of material to work with and i ended up tapering the handle so it would fill up the palms more for a more stable grip, which makes it feel nice and chunky in the palms yet it still feels slim when you wrap your fingers around the waist. I then sanded the wood and micarta to 400 grit and finished off with a fine scotchbrite abrasive and a couple coats of linseed oil, i think it came out nice ...

    Anyway .. here comes the pictures.

    I love this piece. Just a really great piece of work. Such fine detail. Everything looks great - the metal core/forks, the scales, really nice piece of work.

    Very nice and clean work, excellent, didn’t expect anything else.
    Rosewood is awesome, and perfect for handles.

    But reading the headlines, I was hoping to see more wood in the photos…:D

    Can we have hope?

    Really excellent work man, I agree you definitely should work with wood more often.
    I really like your pfs's wish I could work with metal like that! (Hell I'd settle for being able to successfully make micarta lol)
