I sawed the cutouts in a certain angle to the<br> grain and sawed them into 4 peices each. Then i rearanged them to create<br> a leaflike pattern.<br><br>To keep it light i went for a slim shape and <br>used aluminum for the core. Even though it ways less then half compared <br>to a Purple Heart-Brass Slingshot it is solid and strong enough to deal <br>with the most heavy Bands.<br><br>The arrangement of the pieces created a<br> Diamond-square-like Pattern on the frontside and on the backside of the<br> handle you can find the reason why i gave it the name " <i>The Deadly-Leaf</i> ".<br><br><br><img src="http://s7.directupload.net/images/121028/l3ixi3jn.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><br><img src="http://s14.directupload.net/images/121028/vqkwl47n.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><br><img src="http://s1.directupload.net/images/121028/qh2ny8n9.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><br>Cheers AnTrAxX

    Mocha-almond-fugdey goodness!!!! Zebrawood is so pretty! <br>Ever thought, when doing your alum. cores, of doing some nice patterned file work? Like the good knife makers do on the spines and full tangs. Would be a nice look.
