    I'm trying to make naturals. But i really preffer my usual crazy moisture stuff on slingshots!!
    I was collecting guava forks and rods to make my usual mess when I found a very dead fork, three teeth (like posseidons staff, a trident).
    Many holes on it, with "Drills" translation for "brocas" (small beetles that eat wood)
    It had resistance ....I tryed to break it. I hated it! Damn dead non-rotten wood!
    It didn't brake.
    I removed the bugs....the dry rotten berk. Sanded it. Epoxy coated it.
    my uncle loved it.
    this is the GZ (goiaba zumbi).
    I still don't like him.....he keeps staring at me:eek:.
    maybe I'll give him to someone.
    i had to put a whisky glass close to it to make the picture worth.

    I'll give that Bad Boy a home and you will be safe from it FOREVER!
    No sacrifice too great for a Brother. ( I know, I'm a hell of a guy like that.;) )

    I like this!! I'm surprised that you've taken a dislike towards it! Things like the brocas holes only add character!
    Perhaps, if you and GZ have a few glasses of whiskey together, she might start looking more attractive to you and a romance will bloom!!:D
    Or you will just wake up with a headache. ..!

    Anyone can learn to make a slick shooter, but character happens on its own.

    Best guava wood slingshot I've seen been thinking of trying my own I have a lil guava tree (which I hate) and it has some forks that look promising. Do you know if I can do a normal type build on guava? I've only seen one's like this that aren't shaped too much.

    That slingshot makes me think of some archeological dig in some remote desert or jungle... The crypt is opened, and the emperor mummy is still clutching his favorite weapon after 3000 years! It's primitive, it's scarred and crude... yet it has a regal presence that screams of ancient royalty. Indiana Jones would be proud!

    Correction: I found out, in several self experiments, that physically it IS possible to drink alcohol at a much earlier age, even though sometimes at least a part of the ingested alcohol will be re-ejected eventually, and quiet forcefully.
