    Well done! :)
    I would recommend multiplex for your next try, because the "grain" looks fantastic and also it is very sturdy.

    Artons, FANTASTIC job!

    For your first hammerhead, it is a beauty. I am perpetually curious about wood and finish whenever I see something that I VERY MUCH like.

    BTW, you should check out some of Bob Fionda's amazing artistry. He too is a fellow Italian and a member here on the Channel forum.

    You are definitely not alone. [​IMG]

    Well done Artons, what kind of wood is that? Applying such a glossy finish on wood is quite tricky.

    What kind of wood is it? Is it natural or store bought wood?

    For a first, it's very beautiful!

    Well nice job. :D

    Looks like someone is infected like the most of us.
    Nice slingshot, (especially for the first one) and the Hammerhaed form is not the easiest one.

    But did I count three layers of Theraband gold ? :eek:
    You are going to hunt big game?:D

    Keep on building…

    Yay! I can't wait to see what you do with these other beautiful woods, especially that wengè!

    Have you seen LW's 'Chocolate Tiger'? It's really gorgeous and also wengè.
