    Hello Slingshot Community friends!!!
    Here's my latest handmade natural, another version of an old design of mine, the "Slug". Its characteristics are the flowing form of the handle, slight concave shape near the top of the forks (on shooter's side) for better comfort at sideways thumb-support style of shooting and a flat front piece. This one was finished with some linseed oil and natural shellac. It will be part of a future pending trade.
    You folks will excuse the poor quality of the pictures, but today was real lousy weather for photography (I suspect this kind of weather will be prolonged for a few more days ahead)
    Hope you guys like it!!!!
    Cheers ...Q

      Thank you so much for your appreciation, my friend!! :)
      Actually, this slingshot went very well with its finish, but it was poorly displayed on the photos due to the cloudy weather. I'm thinking of adding some more pics to this thread, when the weather allows it. It was the first time I've applied a new batch of shellac to olive wood, with nice results.
      Best regards ...Q
