    I promised to return one of the four Persimmon forks John sent me from Texas in the form of a finished slingshot. So I made a nice shooter yesterday!<br><br>Hammerhead handle, slightly more fat than usual, and a fork that is a bit higher and thicker than my extreme frames (I think John might prefer that). <br><br>This fork is entirely free from cracks, the result of very careful microwave drying. <br><br>As you can see, the fork was thick, but not straight. I had to place my cuts very carefully, but the results are really nice. <br><br><br><div style="margin:auto;text-align:center;width:100%">

    It look´s very nice. But all the things you make, are nice.<br>Microwave drying is new for me.

    Very nice slingshot. The only bad thing is the crack at the end.
