    Finally warming up a bit... Time to build something. Reminds me of a hammer for some reason...

      Nice!
      You found great stuff under the bark!
      Your shaping exposed awesome grain. And it looks like a comfy shooter, too!

      Well done! Reminds me of a flat pry bar.

      Really good looking slingshot, I love the wood. I really like wooden slingshots better than any other type.

      Thanks gents! Funny thing is it was just short a few file strokes here and there. Got that taken care of. Seems like slow growing trees sure do have some unique grain. 35+ annual growth rings on the fork tip and I filed lots more off. IMG_20210212_173649.jpg

      Just an update.. so the shape was super comfortable until about half draw. Then the torque from the forks make the handle want to pivot at the forefinger area. The handle design makes it rotate back easily... Was going to shorten the forks but a friend wanted it as is. Anyhow maybe not the best design for backwards pressure. It did look awful nice though.
