    Very interesting design, I like it. Have you tested the strength with something stronger that the TBB? I'm curious with the narrow spot on the forks how strong this is? I'm with Dolo though, I'll pass on the cucumber :)

    The red plate gives a beautiful contrast to the cucumber.
    Well done.

    I love the shooter. Nice idea! Is that wood resistant enough?

    Ikea makes low-price furnitures in Sweden and sell them everywhere in Europe. Very large supermarkets where you can get lost searcing for the shelf with the right package containing the parts for your new computer table or wardrobe. For my nerves it is better to get a hotdog first for 1€ and a 1€ all-you-can-(soft)drink cup followed by two hours of endless "Oh, look here!", buying not-needed bags of tealights and so on.
    Hours later at home i ask myself: Am i still screwing or finally living?

    The lack of the boxy looking furnitures is an often just-good-enough quality: I remember me sitting on a older kitchen-chair from this company as i visited my new brother-in-law. My little nephew showed a plastic insect jumping out of a box; the good uncle i wanted to be theatrical moved sidewards and the armrest broke. A not so perfect first impression i leaved there... Maybe i will give him a slingshot for compensation :)

    Hahahaha!!!! This was my first thought! Wondered if perhaps too much mead upset your stomach:D?

    Great design for a shooter, never seen anything like that before!

    Thanx all

    Why too much beer? (our mead)

    It shoots perfect but I'm afraid if I push too hard on the top out would break
    the wood is quite hard


    Haha I would pad it too
