    Greetings fellow members!!
    Here's some pictures of my latest natural, a slingshot carved out of an unknown piece of wood. It was finished with linseed oil and beeswax. It sports a SimpleShot latex bandset, with an E-Shot pouch.
    Hope you guys like it!!
    Thanks for watching ...Q

    That's beautiful, Q. I'm a big fan of the merging of curves and angles... and you've done an amazing job of that. Really nice work!

    Thank you very much for your feedback!!!
    My guesses were initially elm and acacia, but I'm not sure at all. It is a strong piece anyway!!

    That is one sweet looking slingshot and looks like a good shooter too. One day I'll make one like that. Great job!
