    I made a Viking Sniper from a natural fork, willow I think, with a palmswell from teak. 3 layers of laquer, first one sanded down. I got some making-of pics if someone is interested, but here are the pics of it finished anyway (Antraxx-style <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> ) :<br><img src="http://i72.servimg.com/u/f72/17/50/40/49/img_0118.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://i72.servimg.com/u/f72/17/50/40/49/img_0119.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://i72.servimg.com/u/f72/17/50/40/49/img_0120.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://i72.servimg.com/u/f72/17/50/40/49/img_0121.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br>Hope you like it!

    Thanks Saderath! I forgot to mention it before but I realised now that I also got a lot of inspiration from you and the Fang!

    Very nice. It looks like footprint from a deer.<br>And you have to know. If you are making something and you´re changing your mind, or something is going wrong, you have to sell it as a very special, that have to be this thing.
