      I start with clean hands so I can see how much fun I had at the end of the day. Like a visual reference. You should differently keep them cleanish when shooting that beauty.

      for a non-builder you are doing a heck of a good job building.

      You're going to get someone hooked on that weed! Dressed up quite nice. Lots of character and good carving skills too.

      Funny I thought that before I read your post
      Lol
      Just f—-ing around “strong good weed is a good combo “ weedwood and I am learning .
      I love the conus style block of wood short Y pfs so leaves a a lot of forks I can use for this style ,
      And I give away almost everything I make anyways I have a real good slingshot Collection going on . So making the stuff is just fun . I have 7 opfs in different wood and material and will try to get almost all types of wood opfs’s so that fat Y that can’t be used as a sling can for a opfs . So I’m a metal man and I’m trying to learn wood .
      Get a oscillating spindle Sander real soon
      That will make my edges much nicer Lol
      It’s hard to stay square when you’re doing everything by hand and learning need a tad bit a help got a few good tools this week pick up a few more in a week or two I should be able to improve my quality vastly !
      I still lack the imagination to carve a piece of slingshot out of a larger piece of wood
      I like the natural style anyways So
      Learning figured I was going to be around here 4 or five years shooting I might as well make something lol :)
