    This is my first natural slingshot. I made it for my son from a dogwood fork that he brought me. It's the first time I've tried to get a really nice finish like this. The finish is Watco Danish Oil Finish wet sanded with progressively fine sandpaper. After the first coat of finish, I wet the sandpaper with the Danish Oil and sanded as the finish soaked in. Then I wiped it clean and waited for it to dry before applying another coat. I think this is 3-4 coats.

    Thanks for the comments! After shooting it, it was really hard to hand over to my son, but he agreed that he would let me use it once in awhile!

    Beautifully shaped and finished, ManThursday! Gorgeous hammerhead in the avatar photo too!

    I'm missing the pretty dogwood from Virginia. Arizona still feels like I'm in foreign territory. Very big state. Beautiful in many places, but strange. Everything bites, stings, or eats you out here. [​IMG]

    I really enjoyed seeing this. Very nice. Thanks for sharing.
