It seems to be more symmetrical than my first attempt,and stands on its own on the forks. I impressed myself, went out today to find some more logs to work with, I figure by christmas I'll have something really worth Joergs time to send to him as a gift <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br>This one took me only a few hours to create! I used some powertools to help though , and a vice was very handy, something I had not used before.<br><br>thanks for viewing!<br><br>edit- banded it up and took a few shots. its a nice shooter, but the "palm swell" needs to be a lot bigger for me....

    Great Job! Maybe you can glue another piece on it to create a palm swell. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cool.gif" alt="Cool" longdesc="6">

    Yeah, I'm debating on it.... I think I'll find a nice piece of birch for the swell...But I have put some final coating on this one, so I will shoot with it some more to make sure it needs it....<br><br>Just got 6 yards of tb Gold in the mail this morning <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"> so it will perhaps be the first one I band up with tb gold <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"> I have never used the gold , every other color, but not gold <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"> I'm excited lol
