    I did not see the picture yet but if you have any doubt about your safetey, don't make a slingshot out of it. <br><br>If you deside to try it, make sure you give it a thorough break test before you use it.

    I think you still could make a strong slingshot with that fork. Only problem I see is the smell when your working with rot/half-rot wood...

    I would make some smaller slingshot from the core. And after that try the pull test - the fork will either break or not.

    <div>I'd say, "Start cutting! You never know what has a diamond inside."</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">
    <br>Failed perception is when you have a gun, I have a slingshot and you think you are the only one that is armed. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7">

    that looks like a nice fork toksick, you could fill the canals with black filler for a cool effect
