    Fascinated by Mr.Arturos great marksmanship, I decided to try the P.F.S. style, and see if my aiming improves. First thing i needed was a P.F.S., sooooo...........

    I got this rare wood, brazilian version of Purple heart. Taught to work...but strong as a rock!

    I've managed to turn it into this pretty lady, 5 cm fork width, 1cm fork gap.....

    And I think I'm going to destroy my thumb again.....:eek:

    So I named it the P.F.S.....Purple finger smasher:D

    Excellent work BV! That wood is amazing and the design itself is totally unique. The curve you built into the shooter is really cool too. The name is great as well! Always look forward to a new creation from the Doc!

    If you use the rest of that purpleheart, finish it with some lacquer to bring out the purple color and to protect from uv damage and fading. I built a guitar with purpleheart, and it's still purple today. Picture attached.

    captain, that is the baddest ass guitfiddle I have ever seen, and ive seen/played many! BV, it may get more purple if you heat it gently. put it in a car with windows up or low heat in the oven, mine got very purple with heat-its the Brazilian type as well. mineral spirits ruin the purple as well as ultra violet rays.

    Rockslinger, I got a damn fine 4/4 purpleheart plank from cook woods out of Oregon. great selection, good prices, quick shipping. I picked my plank out of probably 40 pieces, high quality photos of nearly all available stock.

    I've had similar problems trying to photograph wood. Pictures don't do it justice sometimes.

    Oh man! That one is so sexy!! The wood is awesome. How are your fingers ATM?

    Fingers joke...

    A young couple got married, and in their family, it was tradition
    that the best man dance with the bride for the first song. Well,
    this happened...but then they danced for the second song too. And
    the third. By the time the fourth song came on, the groom ran up
    and kicked the bride between the legs. A riot broke out, and all
    the invited guests were hauled off to jail. In court the next week,
    the judge asked the best man what happened.
    "Your honor, we were just dancing, and the groom ran up and
    kicked the bride between the legs."
    "That must have hurt," said the judge.
    "No kidding," said the best man. "He broke three of my fingers."
