    Ok guys and girls, after a lot of laminating and metal work, I had to work with some naturals.

    And this is what I have done over the week in my spare time.
    Those Forks are made of yew tree, which had to go from the garden in January, so I cut some forks,
    before the tree went to the “Tree Heaven”

    and the second one

    So, tell me which one you like the most and I tell you which is the best shooter …
    Or maybe you don’t like them, then you can post a comment in another Thread.
    :D

    I think I have four natural forks (yew tree) left this is a nice wood comparison to the 20 beach tree forks I have waiting to dry…

    So, sorry folks, this won’t be my last post showing you my homemades and my addiction:p

    They are both absolutely beautiful! but I have to say, the styling on the second fork is amazing! That rounded palm section, the way you shaped the midsection down to reveal the inner grain...just dynamite! Very, very nice!
    And please don't stop showing us your shooters! We all share the same addiction:D!

    Both are amazing LW. The idea with the lanyard hole crossways to the shooting direction is great. ( we need a thumbs up smiley)

    [​IMG] Oh my GAWD!

    LW, every time I see your work, I'm always thinking: It can't get any better. And I'm always wrong. These are magnificent!

    Tree Heaven is right! Which one I like most??? Okay, I'll close my eyes and pick. Um... I'll need to get back to you on that. I seem to be having some sort of double vision.

    Maybe I call them brother and sister, they came from the same tree and I made one Monday and the other on Tuesday. But I won’t say which one is the female, because of D´s unpredictable hormones… :D

    i find the flatter one to be more appealing in grain and finish, but I think that the round one is going to be the better shooter. Regardless of that, they are both quite lovely and Skillfully done.

    LW,

    I like them both but my preference is for the second with the round grip.

    I like the 2nd one more, but both are great forks. Yew seems to be an amazing wood for slingshots.
