    Hello Everyone. I hope a good Xmas was had by all. I got time the other day and decided that after making 3 Chalice for trade or give away that it was time to make one for me. I started to print out the template and was siezed by the urge to tinker with it some. Now Dayhikers design does not Need any improvement. I just can't leave well enough alone. My PhotoShop is years old but it does more stuff than I know how to use, but I can use the distort program. I bulged the handle and that did not do much. I boxed and bulged the fork and I got a rounder cup the width as the regular one and thought that it did not look bad. I ran it out and started hacking Ply and got this.

    The rounder cup provides bigger hands a wider brace.
    I have sent Dayhiker a copy of the "Modded" template and he likes it. Can't ask for better than that.

    Thanx for Lookin' and Happy Shootin'!

    Excellent work sir!
    I never can leave things alone either, but I'm glad that it ended happier for you than it generally does for me!

    Thank you Guys. It still shoots like a Chalice.
    @kohlqez I had thought the same but someone else has it for their own.:(

    That's a beautiful chalice mod Flip! Is that all ply or did you add anything to the fork tips? The way you worked it, it looks like you added some scales to the tips. Looks really good Filp!

    Thank you Sir. It is all ply. I did indeed put ply scales on the tips. They function like band grooves and to my eye look better.

    Looks fantastic! Very Medieval, if Chalice and Goblet have been taken how about The Grail? :)

    Well, I would always be in favor of a slingshot called 'beer stein.' That would be the holiest of grails to me anyway:D

    Some people have the ability to let plywood look magically, you definitely belong to them.

    Incredibly beautiful curves. I like it very much! :)
