    So as promised, I finished my moorhammer. I decided to go with a more streamlined look, removing that hook area at the end of the slingshot.<br>However, after I finished using CA (a.k.a. superglue, it looks amazing by the way. Like glass if buffed enough) and started a few shots, I, being the completely inexperienced shooter that I am, hit the bottom of the fork a few times. I didn't really mind, since I was probably going to make a new one anyway.<br>Then, on my ~100th shot, the fork broke! D: Oh well, no injuries. <br>Here's some pics from when it was still whole. I'll be making a new one with a left-right grain direction on the fork.<br><img src="http://i.imgur.com/zZ7MW.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://i.imgur.com/ADRb6.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://i.imgur.com/ahP67.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Also, I used Tobias' pouch attachment style and roo leather.

    Nice, I love it! It's a bit different shape, but looks really good! Too bad it broke <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_sad.gif" alt="Sad" longdesc="3"> I just finished making a really nice mini Moorhammer natural, and on the third shot or so I had a fork hit and the fork broke off. I worked on it for over 2.5 hours that evening and I got to shoot it 3 times. I'll be making a topic about that soon.

    Ooh! Please try a CA finish, if you have a buffing wheel or just lots of sandpaper, I think you'll be surprised

    I broke a moorhammer with a fork hit lately, it was oak and multiplex core. Shattered to pieces. Wrist flicking is a must with these slingshots.
