    I've not made a slingshot for months!!! but today I made a start on some well matured/dried forks I collected in the summer...

    This one's obviously not finished, but it's taking shape!

    I remember now, this fork came from a blown down English elm in my local graveyard(!) so this will be my 'halloween' slingshot! I finished it off with linseed oil... quite happy with how it turned out... :D just needs a band-set and paracord lanyard

    Oh man, that turned out really nice! That elm has great grain structure, and as others have pointed out, it's got a great ergonomic shape. I may just be inspired to make a copy for myself. Any chance you drew up a design on paper? Nice work.:cool:
