    Hi,
    yesterday I helped my neighbour drilling some big holes in a wall....

    He was so grateful for the help, that he gave me some nice olive wood for building slingshots.

    First I was happy about this.
    But today I looked for the prices of olive wood :eek:...
    This wood costs about 300€ (50 pieces 300 x 60 x 10 mm)
    I told him that this is too much for just a few hours of drilling holes.
    But he said I should build one slingshot for him. :rolleyes:

    So here are some pics.

    From what I've seen olive wood makes great carved stuff, should be fine for slingshots too! Lucky man!

    That is strange, I might be the only one who can’t see any photos, so I wanted to ask you this by “quote” your Thread.
    But inside the answering field I can see some URLs which are blocked by our firewall when copying it directly into the browser...:mad:

    So, can’t see your nice wood, but much fun with the wood, I hope I can then see the slingshots, if you have built them.:)
