    A big hand cannon I made with finger grips. Since this picture was taken I have sanded it much more and rubbed it down with a light oil. Feels great in your hand and it is very sturdy. <br><img src="http://i46.servimg.com/u/f46/17/26/41/96/42211211.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    Many thanks! Like you, I'm also a pipe maker/carver haha. Watching Joerg's videos on the ol youtube got me hooked on slingshots.

    That first natural looks incredibly sturdy! Did you intentionally carve the stick shooter to look reminiscent of a spine?

    Hey pipesmoker, most of my pipes were made as gifts and are no longer with me, but here's a shot of 3 of my earlier creations:<br><img src="http://i46.servimg.com/u/f46/17/26/41/96/6408_110.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Thanks tokSick. Definitely invest in a dremel, such an amazing tool. <br><br>Haha I didn't plan it that way CaptainBacon. Now that mention it, it does have that spine look, huh?<br><br>I also added bands onto the first slingshot. Triple layer of TB gold. Shoots great and the grips just make it feel like it's part of your hand. <br><br>

    Yeah great job with he pipes man i just started on peace pipes my self so im in between projects but it all great fun and learning. I wont lie to you by saying your cats are cool even though i like the 3rd from the bottom because there basic and easy to make with a basic knife and too many people post the same looking shapes. You get the point but good effort please continue to evolve your wonderful creations =]

    Nice job i also just started making peace pipes but i don't smoke so there mainly just to progress my skills in new directions. Im also hoping to work with stone too soon but i would love to get my hands on some volcanic stone as i believe its a great stone to use for the smoking ends of the pipe
