    hey fellow catapultologists (;))
    i found some time to work on a slingshot again :)
    so... i took the third of my yew forks and started cutting away with my brusletto, i wasn't really working with a design, but i think it turned out really nice :D

    one thing i find really fascinating is the fact that one side is really colored and the other quite white, the same as with the PFS (see my previous post). does anybody know what causes this? is it because of the juices that flow to one side as it dries?

    anyway, enjoy!!:D

    The 2 main causes of color change in wood seem to be fungus called spalting, But you you usually see that in dead wood and ground recovered branches. The other seems to be that a part of the wood is dying ahead of the rest mostly from some kind of insect damage. Either way makes for some nice character marks.

    That slingshot came out great. I like the difference of colors, looks awesome.
