    As it turns out to be there is not a single day that I 'm not working on some slingshots. Since I don 't want to open a new thread for each new one and probably bore the sh*t out of you I decided to put them all in here from now on. I hope you enjoy them, any feedback is highly appreciated.

    You know, I just love the way you work and shape the wood of this naturals. Maybe I should give more faith in my naturals too. I saw your collection. Have you ever tried something different? Iron scraps, steel, plastics?

    Well, thank you. And, no, I haven 't tried anything else yet. I plan to build board-cuts with aluminium cores, though. But since I don 't have the necessary tools for that I won 't be able to do that at home.

    Great work, as always! You have a talent for working with natural forks! I really like the looks of the second picture from the top, that is a nice design

    The little eye in the fork of the top one is neat.

    The idea with this one was to maintain as much of the original shape as possible. Personaly I really like the result, what do you think?

    I really like this! The low forks, the stout but naturally contoured handle and the colour of the wood is fantastic! Great job!
     
  15. Absolutely beautiful!

    I know! It is "Braniff's amazing secret wood". What a symetrical fork you got! I love the grain and splinted texture on the fork! Also a notch in the middle! Was it a trident fork?

    Hahaha, thank you. The notch is the result of a wound.
