    Hey guys!

    Probably the only downside of butterfly shooting is using a lot of rubber :D

    So, I would like to trade one of my own shooters for some TB Gold

    This is the Icarus design made from Greek Walnut, Anigre and Cherry veneer spacers and a Red Meranti Palmsweal

    Unfortunately, it has a small fork hit on one of the forks but otherwise in perfect condition. (Please see last pic)

    Thank you for looking, if interested please PM me

    Smart Wood!

    Hi everybody,

    that SS is nice and crafted extremely precise-I couldn´t be sad to have
    one like that ;) ! One day (after the tennis elbow..) ..

    Saderath, well knowing you know what to to with wood, it still could be that
    this is new to you and therefore helpful??! : Mechanically deformed wood (not
    scratches!) has a "memory" of its former shape!
    The egypians used this force (which is huge!) to break rocks for
    their pyramides..

    On my way to the tennis elbow I had a forkhit on my beloved Moorhammer
    Mod for not listening to everybody here, being costive (had no catchbox)
    and using pebbles ( :( )

    The hit was strong, the result was a 3mm deep dent..

    What I did: I took half a drop of spittle on my finger and placed it on the
    dent (spittle is less liquid than plain water, doesn´t run off that easily,
    takes longer to evaporate, on the floor water is just fine..)

    The moisture is drawn into the wood, the crimped fibres are swelling back
    to their old shape.. This works perfect (needs to be repeated a few times)
    on wooden floors, tables, wood, the moisture goes through the cracks of
    the coating (there might be slight changes to colour under laquer).

    Oiled wods can easily be re-sealed!..

    The dent won´t fully vanish, but it "refills" almost completely..

    Be

    pic is after treatment, a drop of hardwax oil will help to fill the rest/reseal
    (remains of dent in the center, one ply is 1.4mm thick, sry no "before" pic)

    Wood is "living" matter! - you might like to know:

    Wood will always "communicate" with moisture.
    Either from the air, or directly in contact with water!
    Wood is "breathing"!:

    the egyptians (in lack of dynamite and tnt..)
    hammered (not drilled) holes into big blocks, all in a row,
    every 15", maybe 2-3 inches deep?..
    Then they took dried wood, stuffed it into the holes
    and filled in water.. That´s it!-
    The resulting pressure of the swelling wood is by far
    more than rock can handle..

    When I use Hammers, I put the head in a bucket
    filled with water first.. 5 minutes, never working
    with a loose shaft :)..

    That´s all, no secret ;)

    Hey Be, if you keep crafting like a mad your elbow won't heal ... I had something like that years ago and didn't pay attention until was a pain even moving my arm, I went for more than one month over kinesiology treatment. so when I noticed my forearm pain crafting I stopped immediately ... take care friend, that could turn serious ...
    Cheers
