The latest addition to the ever growing slingshot collection. Saw this fork and had to go back and get it later on. <br><br>I squared the forks and rasped in the hammer grip (which to me feels super comfy!) Sanded up to 1000 grit, did 3 coats of raw linseed oil, stained with fruit wood varathane, and finished with my homemade beeswax mixture.<br><br>Banded it up with a 26 cm long, 4-2 cm tapered TBG and had a blast shooting it this afternoon. Shoots great!<br><br><a href="http://imgbox.com/adv0qWgW" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://t.imgbox.com/adv0qWgW.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a> <a href="http://imgbox.com/acuFp5qD" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://t.imgbox.com/acuFp5qD.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a> <a href="http://imgbox.com/adn3G9gn" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://t.imgbox.com/adn3G9gn.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a> <a href="http://imgbox.com/abw4vcuP" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://t.imgbox.com/abw4vcuP.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a> <a href="http://imgbox.com/adeAW3D8" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://t.imgbox.com/adeAW3D8.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a> <a href="http://imgbox.com/adbjlKuW" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://t.imgbox.com/adbjlKuW.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a>
