    Hi guys,<br>I was bored yesterday and i had a piece of multiplex left but there was some concrete on it.<br>I removed it but i had to remove the first layer from the wood on both sides too.<br>Then i decide to cut Saderath' s Fang in it.<br><img src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-lPwmeN88TW0/UKaKZkuSiKI/AAAAAAAAANY/qNoK778B6Iw/s512/lance%2520pierre%2520fang%25201.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-qGxzEECEn5U/UKaKZzkeo1I/AAAAAAAAANc/hr-vjpbN6RU/s512/lance%2520pierre%2520fang%25202.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-LEbQ8DNEyKg/UKaKZ81IYXI/AAAAAAAAANg/sx_2w4Ogi3c/s512/lance%2520pierre%2520fang%25203.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br>I did no finish( only oiled) on it 'caus i think it is not worth it. I will make another one in the future with a good piece of wood and finish it like it have to. That shooter fits really nice in my hand and feels so easy to shoot with. That design is just great. You got to try that if you are a side shooter. Thanks so much Saderath, Red.

    Thanks Theodor,<br>It took between 30/60 minutes to make it. I just sanded up roughly because the piece of wood was not a good one and it was just to try that design. But now it is another story,... That' s why the title of the topic is ' More than expected'.<br>I just left it drying like <a href="http://theslingshotforum.forumotion.com/t2195-new-way-to-dry-an-oiled-slingshot" class="postlink">THIS</a>.

    Hi slingpit,<br>I didn' t make so many of them compared to some other members. Got to say, my friends and my bro are a real problem,...everytime they see my last slingshot someone ask me if he can have it. So i give them away. I have 3 slingshots at this moment, i got to meet my friends this afternoon, maybe i will have 2 slingshots left tomorow. The only one i don' t want to give away is my PFS Tourtel Bottle Opener.

    To give away is a problem for me. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15"><br>If it will go on with this speed of making ss, i will get a space problem.<br>Actually 5 ss at home and 2 were gone.<br>Would´nt it be interesting to hear from all members, how many ss they have at home?<br>I guess, Onnod will get the highscore. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_question.gif" alt="Question" longdesc="17">

    @ Arturo Borquez: I can' t make a photo anymore, i was with some friends yesterday and the slingshot is gone. Iwein is a good friend and he asked if i wanted to sell him the slingshot so i gave it to him. I know him for more then 10 years now and we always have great moments together, he is deaf and always plays with some situations to make us laugh. The funniest guy i know.<br>Anyway, Saderath will probably make a photo for you.<br><br>@ mojo: Thanks for that.<br>Now i have to make another Fang and this time i will try to make it nice. I have some Meranti boards left, i think it will be ideal for that.
