    Hey guys!<br>I couldn't wait for this fork to dry for 2 reasons<br><br>a) I have been searching for myrtle forks for a long time and this was the only one i was able to find, from more or less 30 trees that i have come by.<br><br>and<br><br>b) It has a sentimental value to me because my late grandfather used to make baskets out of myrtle back in the day to support his family. <br>Unfortunately no one makes them any more and i didn't have the chance, for him to teach me his craft. So...<br><br>Myrtle natural fork<br>Iroko mid section<br>Cypress end cap<br>Oiled<br><br>I hope you like it!<br>Thank you<br><br><a href="http://www.slickpic.com/s/U2NiMNTlTUONDl/MyrtleDeluxe/photo#3148934" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/U2NiMNTlTUONDl/3148934/800/p/3148934.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.slickpic.com/s/U2NiMNTlTUONDl/MyrtleDeluxe/photo#3148935" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/U2NiMNTlTUONDl/3148935/800/p/3148935.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.slickpic.com/s/U2NiMNTlTUONDl/MyrtleDeluxe/photo#3148939" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/U2NiMNTlTUONDl/3148939/800/p/3148939.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.slickpic.com/s/U2NiMNTlTUONDl/MyrtleDeluxe/photo#3148944" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/U2NiMNTlTUONDl/3148944/800/p/3148944.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a>

    Saderath!!!!! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_evil.gif" alt="Evil or Very Mad" longdesc="12"><br><br>Those pictures are not allowed here!<br><br>It is against the Geneva Convention of slingshot builders.<br><br>It´s a torture to see your slingshot pics and not to own one. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15"><br><br>Fantastic work as always.

    Very beautiful Saderath ...<br>@Maddymax, Onnod, Zwillie I solved that issue, I invented a religion where slingshot adultery is a virtue ... <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7">

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>Thank you! <br>The thing that got me hooked to naturals is that each one is individually different.<br>so each Slingshot is unique.</span>
