    Hey guys,<br>I just made this little natural. It is made from some unknown wood, but it is nice and purple/pink inside, althought my camera doesn't pick that up too good. It is made for finger support shooting and for me it fits just perfect <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br>Well, here some pics, hope you like it <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=200&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i77.servimg.com/u/f77/17/31/63/59/imag0511.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=201&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i77.servimg.com/u/f77/17/31/63/59/imag0512.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=202&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i77.servimg.com/u/f77/17/31/63/59/imag0513.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a>

    I think it's really nice, that you let the fork as natural as possible (necessary) and still left a beautiful slingshot.<br>Often, nature is more beautiful than anything artificial.<br><br><br>Nice Work...!

    THAT is beautiful, onnod! I would ask someone knowledgeable what type of wood. <strong>Curiosity would drive me nuts.</strong> Excellent job shaping it too.<br><br>I love woods with purple or reddish coloring. <font color="#282828">AnTrAxX made a SS with <strong>amaranth</strong> and brass. It's stunning -- reminds me of the color of black jade rose. I also have a pair of lace shuttles made from <strong>lilac</strong> wood that someone sent me. Lilac is a creamy wood with pinkish stripes. There is also a guy, Ghost, who makes naturals from <strong>black mangrove</strong>. The wood is a gorgeous <strong><font color="violet">purple</font></strong> color. Not the usual reddish tones you see. Mangroves are a protected species. He rescues this stuff cut by the state and left to rot.</font><br><br><font color="#282828">I am trying to learn my 'purple' woods because <u>one of these days</u> (when I feel worthy) I want a PURPLE slingshot of my own. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_bounce.gif" alt="bounce" longdesc="27"> I'm too new to mess with wood -- scared I might damage the forks. I'm happy with my <strong>bullet-resistant</strong> G-10 Tactical tho. It gets the job done.</font>
