    Inspired by mother nature, i thought this fish has a nice slingshot shape.

    The handle is out of oak and mirabelle.
    It only need a little bit of fine sanding and oiling, but i couldn´t wait to show this.:D
    And one word to Brazilviking. The small radius is made with my bandsaw.
    I hope you like it.

    [​IMG] OMG! Slngpit, THAT is totally awesome!

    Very impressed with this one. I love goldfish. [​IMG] Heck, I'd even take that without a palmswell. I'm not picky at all. :p

    Thanx for all your kind words.
    I´ve also to say thanx to my brother, which gave me this nice parts of wood. The mirabelle is very soft. It gives a realy smooth touch.

    Really great Work, I love the Design! :cool: 1+
    Maybe you can engrave the outlines with a dremel.

    Thanx.
    I would leave it without any engraving. Engraving an eye and mouth and .... will give a look like a toy.

    Very interesting and innovative design, slingpit. Well done!

    That is beautiful, and gaining inspiration and design ideas from a fish is very unique! Excellent metalwork, this just looks perfect!

    Wow..., love the Veil fish, when I saw the second picture I was thrilled, but seeing the palmswell,
    I was a kind of shocked. :eek: I know you said “…because of large hands…” but that I would not care. :rolleyes:

    I would drill a hole in the head looking like an eye and maybe attaching a lanyard.

    Sorry for being so honest, but that is just my opinion. :p
