I will certainly make more than one... I have so many great naturals waiting for me that I am eager to start working on them. <br><br>Next one will be made from orangetree wood, from Crete! That wood is amazing - bright orange yellow.

So, last night after some rasping and sanding I microwaved this pine fork and this happened:<br><img src="https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-w2GAVF9ch2s/UJAfve8-u3I/AAAAAAAAAQA/n_sHsWL9w8I/s400/20121029_184951.jpg?gl=FI&source=mog&hl=fi&gl=fi" border="0" alt=""><br><br>It looked and felt quite solid before the microwave...<br>So I just sawed that part off and made the fork even lower. It still needs a lpt of sandpaper work, and I hate that part...<br><br>A

I will have to figure out something for shipping but I'm in. I think Manzanita is quite a pretty wood, and strong too, and it grows all over where I live. It would be a simple thing to go cut some forks. I really like this idea of using local woods to make shooters but any slingshot trade would be epic.

That's purdy.<br><br>PS: Sadly I'm going to have to drop out, my girlfriend had to have her cat put down and I can't afford to make a slingshot right now.
