Made this sweetie back in the summer of 2011, during my "Six Circles" phase. http://slingshotchannel.blogspot.de/2011/08/white-ebony-now-six-circles-shooter.html It is probably the nicest Six Circles model ever - that rare white ebony is something special. It was really old, worm eaten and partly decayed. But oh so pretty. I love that slingshot. But the oil did not stop her from decaying further. The lamination came loose around the ends of the fork and handle, the wood shrank and the repaired worm holes lost the smoothness. So my baby needed attention. I promised her that Daddy would make it all good. Then I carefully repaired the damage and resanded her. One final time my baby was allowed to quench her thirst and drink from linseed oil, then I shut her off from this cruel world forever. She is now safe behind a thick layer of polished polyurethane. Protected from sunlight, air, water, heat - never again will my sweet baby age. She will stay like this for ever now.
