I was checking out our bushes today and found this!! There isn't much of a bush left, but it will grow back. My husband tried to help and I told him I can cut my own damn forks. So, what do I do now?! Can it stay like this(like for a week)? Do I take the bark off and then dry it out? Walk me through the steps, I'm actually attempting to make my first slingshot! Now for the bonus, I built this today. I still need to cement it and get the sheet up there a little better, but for the most part it is done! I'm excited! PLUS, my ammo came today, so I'm ready.
