    Spindle Cicatrix



    Made from European Spindletree. Made to look like the willow natural you can see at 5:00 [ame="http://youtu.be/MljwMgaJvBE?t=5m1s"]here[/ame] After I removed the bark (was after month of drying indoors.) it cracked so I healed the wounds and eyes with a mix of saw dust ink and epoxy.

    You can see a little shakey video of it [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXfWbacfUTU"]here[/ame]

    What do you think be open I want feedback to improve! Thanks.

    Like the shape, and the handle curve.
    You can use handle and / or fork caps to spice it up but I think it's perfect the way it is.

    What a great piece of work. Very nicely done. I love the shape. The cracks/marks in the wood really give it nice character. Great slingshot. Have you banded it up and fired it yet?

    This is a very nice shape, and slingshot, don’t mind the cracks, those give a very nice character to it.

    Good job!
