I present my latest effort. a few weeks ago the grounds keeper at my work gave me a lovely slab of Tasmanian Oak to put to 'good use' (wink wink, nudge nudge) I decided that the first thing to come out of it would be a gift for him, as I seem to have caused him to be bitten by the slingshot bug as well (it's very contagious it seems) It's a 20mm thick board, and it is extremely strong. in the weight tests it supported my full weight (me literally suspended from the forks) and I weigh just a pinch over 100kg. It's finished in a few coats of BLO, and has 3cm X 30cm straight cut TBG and a laminated Kangaroo leather pouch, I set it up to shoot marbles as we have a TON of them at work (I work at a school). I'll be presenting it to him tomorrow, I think he'll get a kick out of it!
