    I thought it was about time to put a couple up for sale.

    They're all made using my split frame technique, where they're are first cut at an angle then glued back together, thus eliminating any weak cross grain.

    They'll come banded with your choice of GZK flat bands or GZK 1745 tubes.
    Also included is a velvet pouch and descriptive card.
    Shipping is $16.00 U.S. for international mail and $7.00 for local Australians.
    Paypal preferred.

    First up the "boomerang-S" a three piece laminated slingshot. The core is Tasmanian oak with Jarrah & Tasmanian oak faces. A mid sized slingshot " that will suit most hands. Tassie oak fork tips, and a brass lanyard finishes it off.

    $60.00 U.S. plus shipping

    Approx. size
    Fork width... 90mm 3.5"
    Inside...........50mm 2"
    length.........150 mm 6"
    Thickness ...25mm 1"

    2nd is the "Tasmanian Devil" SOLD
    The frame is Spotted gum, an Australian eucalyptus known for it's toughness and "shockability". The palm swell is Maple with a Jarrah stripe. I call this style a "palmy" as it's short but with a thick palm swell that fits nicely in the palm. Maple fork tips and a brass lanyard finish it off.

    $60.00 U.S. plus shipping

    Approx. size
    Fork width... 95 mm 3 3/4"
    Inside...........50 mm 2"
    length.........140 mm 5 3/8"

    SOLD

    3rd the "Joey" SOLD
    The frame is spotted gum, an Australian eucalyptus known for it's strength and toughness. The palm swell is Bog oak and buckeye burl on a maple spacer. A mid size slingshot that will suit most hands. Buckeye burl fork tips, brass pins and lanyard insert finishes it off.

    The Bog oak has been laying in a Russian swamp for over a thousand years. The natural minerals in the swamp has given it the almost pure black color.
    The Buckeye burl is from the Buckeye tree of Northern California.

    $75.00 U.S. plus shipping.

    Approx. size
    Fork width... 95 mm 3 3/4"
    Inside...........50 mm 2"
    length.........140 mm 5 3/8"

    SOLD

    Oops sorry mate, that sold on Monday, but I'll be making a similar one, if you want to wait. Otherwise this one is still available for $70.00 plus shipping.

    The frame is spotted gum, an Australian eucalyptus known for it's strength and toughness. The palm swell is dyed and stabilized maple on a maple spacer. Maple fork tips and brass lanyard insert finishes it off.

    aww man! that is just my luck these days! haha. That is certainly a beautiful piece. i was particularly interested because of the really great use of all those exotic woods from around the world. especially the russian bog oak, my grandfathers side of the family is from around there! So, i think i will hold off for just now and see what you come up with next!

    really though awesome work, though for real!

    No problem, I'm in the process of finishing a pair of Yin, Yangs similar to these. I'll let you have first dibs on them before I put them up for sale. 38470072_1909985932397682_457058045839540224_o.jpg
