here you can post, what you did today
please let this thread be alive
i made a mead horn holder today
Why didn't you make the Form of the stand for the Met Horn not as a Slingshot?
A tree fork as stand!
I was in the Forest and shoot with my new Howitzer aluminium.
It is nice to shoot with them.
its cool has that industrial look natural would be cool too
Lars: Nice idea (both with this thread and with the horn-holder. Mind if I make one?
I marched with Mora Musicband, I played the snare drum. My dad was ill and couldnt join us (he usually plays the tuba). Then we rehersed for our upcoming Estonia-trip next weekend.
But what else would I do today!!! Carve another slingshot
made some charcloth and tried making fire with flint & steel. no success, so i burned it with sun & magnifying glass.
searched through my target foam with a metal detector to retrieve a couple of field tips and lead balls.
plinked 'round with a no fork slingbow. after a few shots i found it not comfortable that the rubber was cutting off blood cirkulation around my ring finger and middle finger knuckles so i will make some kind of knuckleduster frame in near future.
What else to do when Lars is such an awesome inspiration-source!
Finished a minute ago, took about five minutes to make. Sorry for bad webcam-pics!
btw, nice horn stands lars and fiaao!
I tried the first time full butterfly and get my first fork hit ... and fixed the first time a shooter ...
But i must mention the shooting was cool, not akkurat but impressiv fast
Finished sanding a board cut out of okume marine plywood and made a bunch of pouches, I will post pics of the slingshot once i band it up.
Also all of these horns, have you guys ever seen the slingshot made from a bull horn? i think it was on the "slingshots of the world" web site.
I tested my new safety wall behind my catchbox. 180cm x 180cm, solid oak (40mm boards). It is set in concrete.
I like it! Fired about 500 hex nuts today from the pump gun (that is so much fun), now my arms and shoulders are hurting... but I enjoyed it. The thing is so quick.
I also shot probably 200 rounds with normal slingshots. Will go to Paris in three weeks, on invitation of France5 (a TV channel). Don't want to embarass myself there, so I need the practice after the looong winter.
Gave a guy at work his first custom Shooter and some spare bands.
and nice stand too fiaao
(great thread idea) Today, I some what had some time off. Just had to corrall some widcats (didn't get too beat up, haha). Than sat in our warm New Mexico sun with a cold drink.
I made, 3 more Naturals, witch will maybe be on the sale section soon
Nice horn stands, i got dragged over the beach by a massive kite because it was waaaay to windy lol
edit, that was yesterday acctually but today i haven't done anything but chatting with my gf and laying in bed so that's kinda lame
Thanks Lars and Onnod.
I made a crossbow today. Just a weak one as the legal power limit for crossbows are 10j in Sweden. Stupid Swedes setting low limits...
I have to make the arrow-clasp, the stirrup and of course some arrows before I post any pics The crossbow is loosly based on the classical "Lillöhus"-crossbow:
