    This week that ends, I took up some projects that had been left on the table for a few months. I wanted to start with something simple to go back to the making.
    When I had already applied the epoxy to join the parts, I realized that I no longer had bronze pins so I had to improvise with steel ones (although they were less thick than what I required).
    Anyway. This small slingshot is made with wood that a colleague gave me and that comes from the root of a tree called Espino and both sides are separated by a red micarta spacer.

      Thank you my friends. It is the second time that I use wood from one root and in both the grain has been very attractive

      Thanks a lot my friends. I really needed to spend time making some sawdust.
