    Hi all,

    recently Ozzy posted his slingshot as a part of Santa trade on SSF. I just finished mine, just to band it a ship it. My trade partner prefers regular small fork, so I decided to go with ash that I found already fallen. I didn't need to shape it at all and that was probably the most interesting part of the work for me. Next time probably I will try to look for perfectly shaped forks rather then take a thick one and rasp, rasp, rasp.. and rasp again.

    The end is cherry (lighter) and plum (darker; the same I sent to @failure).

    And I almost forgot that at the back side you can see how a worm tried to make a hole inside. Didn't suceeded :D

    Hope you like it ;)

    Another very lovely piece of work, Stej. I honestly I don't see how that fork could get any more perfect. Looks fantastic to me [​IMG]

    I absolutely love the stylish touch with the cherry and plum. Like I said, lovely. CM will definitely like this smaller one. He'll love everything about it!
