    After a few weeks without making any frame, my internal termite became anxious and in two days cut and carve the silhouettes of a dozen natural forks. .
    Most of them are from different species of tropical hardwood trees. Each frame was made without plan or pervious design, only following the impulse, shape of the fork used and influence of the large number of styles seen in this community and the web in general. One of them inspired by the thumper design, by CanOpener. Now I come out of the oil and this is the group of slingshot that resulted from that couple of frantic days.

    The second I liked it as much as it was already in my collection and I even want to replicate it in aluminum. The first one does not have a name yet if I wanted to make a deal, it would be an honor for you to have it ....

    Thank you Bugsbrew, I appreciate your kind comment. I really enjoy doing each and every one of them. I had a long time without having the pleasure of building so many pieces at the same time.
