    Bear with me, cause you guys know i ramble on and on...
    A few months ago, i made my first conus, a Wide gap conus, cuz i suck at shooting PFS, and i was really impressed at the design, comfort and at the amazing presicion this frame has (probably the model contains @Arturo Borquez mojo in them), so After a few months and no fork hits, i decided to make myself a fancy conus.

    I had a beautiful piece of Tzalam wood, a tropical hardwood with a red-brown-golden color, and it was just laying around the shop, and recently i got a piece of Palo escrito wood (Dalbergia Palo-escrito), which is kinda difficult to come by, so i decided to laminate both of them and here are the results.

    and again, thanks a lot to @Arturo Borquez for the amazing design and to @Palmettoflyer for posting the template for the Widegap.

    Thanks for watching!

      That's gorgeous! I definitely need to make one of these with a wide gap. Like you, I suck at shooting pfs but love this design. :)

      Wow!
      Both the woods are stunning!
      And they work together beautifully in this piece.
      Congratulations on your second Conus!
      It's a lovely slingshot!

      Thanks for all your replies guys, i really like how it turned out.
      I haven't been able to shoot it yet, mw elbow is kinda f*ck*d right now and i cant seem to hold my slingshot straight, i just got a really nasy fork hit on my favorite alu and micarta frame, so i think i'm gonna leave this one alone for a while...
