    Hey everyone.

    Took some photos of what i managed to finish today, i really liked the bolsters in my previous project so i thought i would do it again with black and brown Micarta on a base layer of 2mm thick G10 liners. I think it came out pretty good, what do you guys think?

    That looks like something Arturo would enjoy shooting. Nice work!

    Nice one! Looks multifunctional to me like you could pry open a car door with it or something . Nice job on the build!

    Why does it seem like everyone else works faster and better than me?

    That is a very nice piece of work. Looks like a fine chisel. That's the type of slingshot I'd like to make myself some day. I love that micarta.

    Fantastic work Danny, you make that Aluminum look like stainless steel.

    Am I mistaken, or are the fork tips more edgier than your last models?

    This is the perfect brother for the one with the carbon fiber scales.

    Your slingshots look like jewelry, if I get access to one of yours, defiantly would hang around my neck.:D

    What is the black layer between the metal body and the Micarta handles?

    Thanks guys! :D

    Thanks LW! yeah the edges on the fork tips are bit too pointy for my liking .. i just went and rounded the edges with a scotchbrite so it won't tear up flatbands during use.

    It's 2mm thick Black G10 and the Black and Brown Micarta are both 6.35mm thick.
