    That' s a nice collection and they look all pretty. I like to finish my slingshots with super glue too but they are not as shiny as yours. Great job(s).

    Thanks tokSick, I used 2500 grit wet and dry, then auto-glym car glass polish, which seems to take very little effort and strangly the shiny finish is quite grippy unlike p.u.<br>

    <span class="postbody"><br>I guess that' s why mine are not so shiny. I go up to 800 grit usually, i don' t have enough patience and want to use them as quick as i can. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_redface.gif" alt="Embarassed" longdesc="10"></span>

    @ MaddyMax, You'd be hard pushed to find a symmetrical ash fork left in our area <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_pirat.png" alt="pirat" longdesc="23"><br>I have quite a few large forks left drying as well<br><br><img src="http://i12.servimg.com/u/f12/17/99/08/66/img_0312.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>I can't find decent plywood for boardcuts and naturals don't break<br><br>@22lr - a large piece of thin kangaroo hide, cut across the grain so that it curves, i bought a half hide from a falconary supply<br><br>My favorite is the black handled ash U - i'm quite accurate with it
