    Here's my latest. #7 for me. I made this for a guy I work with. He comissioned me to make him one. It's a red cedar fork. Single Theraband Gold. 3 coats of tung oil. That was a first for me. I like the way it turned out. I think he will too. Plus it shoots great!

    Very nice!!! The grain and color reminds me more as acacia wood!

    Had some very cold days earlier this week and to be nice at closing time at work, I started a few of my coworkers vehicles for them to warm up. I got in the vehicle of the guy who bought this slingshot from me and happened to notice it lying in front of his center console....all chewed up. He never mentioned that to me. Don't know if he thought I'd be upset with him or what. Just thought it was a sad sight.

    That had to be a heart-breaker man. I'm sorry to hear that.
    'Chewed up' as in dog got hold of it? Or as in 'lots of fork hits?'
    Either way, this was a great piece of work, and I hope it was enjoyed.

    Yeah. Chewed up as in his puppy had gotten ahold of it and decided to personalize it himself. Looked to me like it was mostly the handle but I only got a quick enough look at it to see that it'd been seriously uglified.

    Great work on that natural. Definitely different from the kind of soft red cedar I see around here - that stuff wouldn't stand up to being a fork, only for caps, etc. Sorry to hear about that slingshot getting chewed up - I'm sure he's bummed about it too.
