    This is a quite big hammer grip shooter I have made from a poplar root found on a riverbank. It has some stones inlayed as they have been taken in while the root was growing up. I hope you may like it. Thanks, Bob<br>[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I'm glad you like it. Roots are kinda sculptures made by nature itself and shoot well too.
