    Hey guys! This was my most recent and most elaborate slingbow build. This slingbow started life as a rough cut walnut 2x4. I cut that into thin strips on a table saw. These I used to make into 4 layered sections. I then glued these sections together into the whole slingbow. I roughly cut the shape with my scroll saw, band saw, and drill press. I then used rasp, file, and sanders to more precisely shape the slingbow. I filled a few small voids with wood glue and walnut dust along the way. I sanded to 2000 grit. Finally I finished it with I believe 8 coats of tung oil and then paste wax. This was my end of a trade with Bone. I received one his awesome Bonegrip pfs's in return. I really need to post that as well. ;) Thanks for looking! rps20180502_003141.jpg rps20180502_003200.jpg rps20180502_003222.jpg rps20180502_003240.jpg rps20180502_003321.jpg rps20180502_003300.jpg rps20180502_003345.jpg rps20180502_003407.jpg rps20180502_003428.jpg
