    Hi everyone!!!
    My computer is down at the moment so that is why there is only one pic.
    I'll put some more detailed ones up when the computer is back so I can downsize the pics!
    So, from left to right

    Yew and bamboo choppingboard laminate:
    In Jörgs rambone style which I really like! It's really solid and is set up
    For 16mm steel.

    Pocketable yew thumb finger support style shooter:
    I take it everywhere!! Set up for butterfly and 10mm steel.
    It's got a few cracks, but I think that adds to its character.

    Another yew fork, but this one is special! It was from an old tree and this
    Branch must have been dead for a long while. (This can be seen in how
    Dark the wood is). And it was a thick branch so it's been thinned down to just heartwood. This one is for my dad. (Hence the tubes as they last a lot longer)

    Then there is what I call. The Hornethammer design from a big old chunky bit of Oak. This one has some real nice patterns in it! That's my marble shooter.

    I love that wood! It has beautiful grain! :)
    You did a great job, the grain curves are perfectly armonized with the slingshot.

    That's some beautiful wood! I love the grain structure. And the laminated Rambone really turned out great. Very nice work.

    Mostly the colours!-

    I bet it feels perfect to have those
    near to oneself!..

    Nice work from an artistic mind!

    Greetings and thanks for the colours,

    Hey! And thanks for all the nice words! really motivates me! (If it's possible to be more motivated to make slingshots!) :D
    Sorry for being so lazy in replying. (Happens sometimes...)
    Yew is definitely my favorite wood to work with! It just has the tendency to turn into whatever the design in my head is!!
    I've actually been right into my next project which is now almost finished!
    I'll give a couple of hints... Australian figured Jarrah, Alu, buffalo horn, Hornethammer!
    :D
