    So the kid wanted another slingshot. Lilac fork on deer horn, with sunflower. Just looking for ideas to burn on fork to tie it together... ??? maybe just leave it?

      Now that is cool !

      Maybe burn a nice 12 point Buck head with the antlers going up each fork ?

      Sweet work!
      That's a really nice joint between the wood and antler. The base of the antler is way dramatic! And the burning on the sunflower is an amazing accent.
      Bravo! Put that burning stick down!

      Thanks. Those joints are kinda tricky with a file. I'm thinking you're right to leave it.

      Drilled a 1/4 inch hole in each piece and used about an 1 1/2 inch piece of bolt with a generous amount of jb weld. Worked pretty good.

      Dude.. That's amazing.

      I dig it as-is.

      The sweet fibbonaci spiral on the bottom is darn near poetic, to me, for tying the materials and theme together. Everything visible on your work is of and from nature.. So using that golden ratio(ish) flower center is perfectamundo!

      Thanks for the feedback. I'm glad you recognize what I was trying to do. That simple appearing shape is kinda difficult to reproduce.

      Yes, sir.. That's a very finicky pattern, but you did an amazingly symmetrical rendition, there!

      I'm awful at math, but I've always been very interested in nature and it's patterns. Specifically the golden ratio in nature and also replicated or utilized in engineering and art.

      You'll notice here on my first frame pattern, the + signs? They're where the frame intersects, exactly at the golden ratio. ..i really thought I was being smart and original..
      Then, after I shaped it to fit my hand I looked up on the webernets how the cool kids are making slingshots, and I have to say, at first, I was disappointed that my frame was very similar to other ergonomic designs folks have made. ..an example is the Torx frame I think it's called. ..that rig looks spot-on fibbonaci ratio in handle placement in relation to the forks. Lol.. So much for originally, I thought.

      Then I laughed at myself, because, of course it looks like other ergonomic designs. And of course the ergonomic designs follow, intentionally or not, the golden ratio. Because hands are pretty much all the same. And since hands are of nature, they follow the mathematical sequence of nature.
      0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8 etc.

      And shut up.. I'm not a nerd. You are. [emoji38][emoji106]Ha!

      Lol. Well you're only a nerd if you're using the tape measure. Otherwise it's just artistic inspiration.
