    This is the CLONE bamboo PFS just finished and tested, a wonderful powerful little shooter ... generous 22mm fork tips, 8mm fork gap and 54mm wide, specially made for sideways butterfly, very simple board cut design, rounded and wax polished
    Cheers

    That's a nice PFS - I like it. Looks like it works well.

    On behalf of all the world's tincans. You are a monster! Look at that poor wretched soul!

    Naah :D Very neat one, sir! I'm not a fan of PFS (i mean the look, i haven't even started shooting since I'm waiting for the bands for my first SS :D ) But this one looks utterly great!

    don't knock it before you try it, as a rook I didn't like the look of a pfs but I can shoot it a hell of a lot better than my bigger "cooler" slingies. you might be surprised as I was.
    Mr. Arturo, I like the bold handle design on it. as always, great display of less being more:).

    Ha, Arturo in creative-mode. Very nice and efficient! Seems that your wife has lock away her wooden plates.
    Your wife: ARTUROOOOOOOOOO...... There is a hole in my favourite mahagony plate in the shape of a slingshot!!!!!!
    You: I don't know honey, weird things happens from time to time.... Eeeer... I am in the garden for the next hours. I have to test a new slingshot.....
    :D

    Nice new shooter Arturo! Oh yes...that is a can-eating machine, and no doubt about it! I like to see you making slingshots of this quality!
    And, as Flicks said (and the image he described has me laughing) I would suggest not chopping up the furniture...it may put a strain on marital relations:D

    Thanks Will ... cutting a board like this and rounding with the appropriate tools (a band saw, a router and a belt sander) would be a 5 minute work to be done, but I have only a few hand tools and sand paper so it takes me 3 hours ... at least not too long to make me quit LOL !
    Cheers

    trouble to come?

    Really nice and simple!
    I like that little thing!

    I know I will be in trouble soon,
    because I can already feel that
    this bamboo cutting board in our
    kitchen soon will undergo some severe
    change!!

    And for my wife knows me pretty well
    I´m gonna be in some trouble soon
    after that!- she wont believe that
    board wanted that to happen
    (but I can hear it calling for me..)

    I knew it!

    guess what: that board has just disappeared!
    and somehow reappeared in my workshop,
    taking a nap!

    I knew it!
