    Here's my first attempt at laminating a Ali core and adding stainless steel pins n lanyard tube. What a pain to sand pins level with the wood, a lot was learned and a lot more time was spent. Scaled in a natural fork of Zelcova serrata. Finished in satin wipe on poly n beeswax. Set up with looped 2040s she's my new favorite. Thanks @Toddy for mule! Thanks for looking guys![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanks, I've scaled a few rooky knives but this is my first real deal sling with some substantial weight and balance. It's my next step beyond carving natties and maybe some multplex frames from the templates created by the good people of the community.

    Thank you sir. It's funny how every sling I build becomes my new favorite.

    Thanks man, she fits pretty well in my medium sized hands. Next one will be at 90% I think.
