Hey Y'all. It's been several months since I've whittled down a slingshot and I was itching to do so. I moved to Monterey California back in June and have been enjoying the new scenery and in particular the natural beauty of the area minus the smoke from all the devastating forest fires. However, going along with the absurdities of our 2020 rollercoaster, I've fallen in love with the Monterey Pine which is only found naturally in the vicinity. I picked up this deadwood fork on one of my rambles and I got to it with axe and rasp (and a bit of 150 and 220 sandpaper). It has some pleasant color bands and spalting. A little bit of crotch figure in the fork was also a nice surprise. I've worked with deadwood pine before and it is a bit porous in the lighter parts of the rings but this natty was solid and a harder wood to work on than you'd figure. I didn't bother with much of a finish except for rubbing it down with some "Sno-Seal" wax. I call this one "Grover".
