    Has any one ever used or seen this wood used for a slingshot frame? Around here it's a common weed shrub. It's very tough and has a white wood. Similar to Wax Wood of martial arts fame. I have seen it used for bows. ??

    Yes, it is a fine wood, though not very interesting grain or figure. Very tough

    Yellow <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br>True, plus it is a little bit poisonous so don&rsquo;t lick you fingers during the work ore put them in your eyes <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15"> It&rsquo;s very popular as a hedge bush. And in my opinion it can be compared to the dogwood in slingshot making. <br>Cheers <br>Rafal
