Hello all,

After browsing the forum for a while, I decided to give it a try at making a slingshot from a natural fork I get from a guava tree near my house. I've made it with just hand tools, a lot of sanding and tons of patience. Then, I finish it with Tru-Oil (an oil for gun stock finish I had from a previous project. It's made by Birchwood Casey, in case anyone is interested).
Now I just need some elastic bands to shoot with it!:D

Process:







Final piece:











Greetings from Brazil!

Good Lookin' fork! Real nice job on the carve out. I've been using Tru-Oil for a few months and I LOVE that stuff! Really easy, great looking and durable.

The ergonomics you added to the handle look very secure and comfy.

I also like the blade-carved textures--guava looks like it behaves very well under a sharp edge.

Great work.

Very nicely shaped, ToothPickle. I really like the carve marks on the forks, great detail. Hm, everybody is using this Tru-Oil - I think I will give it a try. Thanks for sharing!
