    Ok knocked these out this morning now that all my trash days hauling the hoarder house is done and gone yeahoooooooo !!!!
    Today was like “ what do I do !?”
    So let my hips rest today did extra work yesterday to finish and I m paying for it
    Both canes today can’t stand much just a pain day “ I can do anything once but then I pay for it . Kind of like a tretssyndrome my nerves just start going off everywhere, when they feel like it ,like blurting out something no control and I can’t walk or sit or stand or do anything for about two days .
    So sling time !
    Made these
    Both pfs
    One a long legged Beauty 0PFS -ish hate calling it that because it is not but it is .
    And one pfs that fits a righty so nice lefty not so much dang it ! So fits the left hand hold guys “odd balls”
    So.
    one long Legged beautiful 0PFS-ish
    Nibbler ?
    I like longer just easier ! To hold on to .
    Left the outer layers of the bark to show more natural look my girls don’t like
    make -up lol

    Now when u go into a old western bar “ we’re in the 1750-1870’s there’s always a picture of a beautiful curvy big large woman never a skinny beautiful chick picture on the wall always Full figured all woman !
    So today we have her here with us
    a pfs that’s is curvy full figured one of a kind Beautiful sling . Maybe trade ? Give away ? This fits a right-handed shooter somebody holding with their left hand much better than a lefty :( it really feels comfortable in your hand either way both ways flipped around for somebody holding it in there left hand . Left the original bark in the knot because it was covering the center core perfectly and look cool and works as a great place to tuck the fingers . it’s definitely a shooter
    Bands tomorrow !

      They both look like shooters!
      I like the color, contrast, figure and finish in both.
      But I think the one with the pointed handle really sings! That's a really nice stick, and your work took every advantage.
      Hat tip to ya!

      Thanks guys yes both feel good
      Starting really like the long legs of the
      Opfs-ish one, I would of messed with the fork size some but wanted to leave all natural none of the sides or gap where cut at all and as for her legs “ love the Opfs , size not so much ! Let’s say it’s my limit on small “ just at the age where my fat old fingers aren’t as nimble as they used to be and can’t hold on to things as well so larger or longer really helps .
      Almost the right opfs natural size
      But liking it ! Can’t really shoot the other one it’s for you oddball Rigjtys
      My creativity or confidence level is not there yet to be able to carve nice pieces out of a piece of wood so I kinda try to go the natural flow of it . knowing I should shape things even symmetrical whatever you wanna call it I just think it looks cooler natural butttt

      have you seen "woodcarving tree spirits"? the larger one with the knot looks ready for a face peeking out.
