    Finished it yesterday, came out very good. It is amazing how strong that dogwood is. Even the hooks ("triggers") are solid, solid, solid.<br><br>BTW, this was the fork I made it from:<br><br><div style="margin:auto;text-align:center;width:100%">

    Realy nice slingshot!!! And I love the olive wood you got there. Its a miricle how you make something that beautiful from something that bulky and realy not good looking (I ment on that fork you started with <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> ) You are an artist

    That's fast becoming a classic silhouette and the finish is beautifully done.

    The Howitzer is a design that I gave to Peter Hogan, so I can't publish the blueprints. Sorry for that! But the Moorhammer cutout is available.
