    Hi guys,

    Here's a natural fork I found in my backyard. This is my 1st time carving anything. I peeled the bark and gave it a bunch of microwave sessions over a few days. While carving it into shape and making finger grooves, the wood revealed itself as a finger to me so I went with it. Finished with 5 coats of minwax tung oil finish.
    Feels great in my hand, in both thumb support and hammergrip. And it's a great shooter with dble TBG and Supersure pouch.
    Hope you guys like it, thanks and bye bye :)

    Nicely carved but that "finger" design is something not everyone would consider "beautiful" I guess :D
    It is certainly a good shooter! Good work! :)

    great idea

    and well done!

    - although i usually don´t like people to show me their "finger" :)

    might be excellent to not only kill zombies but to
    really pi** them off before that..

    Nice slingshot!

    Very clever and well executed. It is bigger than I thought, but still a very nice shooter.
    Saying that the, "...wood revealed itself..." says to me that we will see many good things from you.
    Welcome to Sling World! You can never go home.

    A guy ask the doctor some sleeping pills. The doctor offered him a new suppository and says:
    "It is so effective that when you wake up the next morning, you'll still have the finger in the a.. !"

    thank you :)

    Thanks everyone for your support of my first attempt. I hope no one was seriously offended by my finger, I mean no disrespect. I'm starting my next slingshot this week and I promise NO body parts will be represented in the piece. Well, that's it for today, Thanks and Bye Bye :)
