    This is my new rambone slingshot that i am very pleased with. It has a 20mm teak core, aluminum spacers, wenge faces and an ironbark palmswell.

    I love the moorhammer handle, and how the aluminium stands out against the dark wenge.

    Sanded to 1200 grit, finished with linseed oil.

    Love your work. I've got one about 30% through the sanding stage at the moment, and will post the pics when it's done. As an aside, do you find it difficult getting all the curves in the design symmetrical? It has been doing my head in.

    By the way, did Joerg design the ramsbone or was it someone else?

    Really beautiful!
    Perfect shape and great finish, it seems smooth and natural.
    I can recognize wengè, but what kind of wood did you used for the palmswell and for the core?

    Thats a really nice one, against all odds displayed in the video. Some people would have given up by the time.

    Great work!

    Very nice work KW! I love the Rambone design, I have yet to try anything board cut or laminated like this yet. Good choice of woods and nicely shaped and finished. Well done.
