    Hello Slingshot Community friends!!
    I present my latest hand carved frame in acacia wood (Acacia dealbata), the "Butterscotch"
    Since this one has a kind of caramel colour and it's going to my friend Trap1, which lives in Scotland, I've chosen this name!
    It was finished with linseed oil and acrylic varnish, which is a first try for me.
    Hope you like it!!!!
    Cheers ...Q

      Very nice. Double nice when you get a fork good enough to not have to fill cracks holes and voids.
      Great shape and finish on that

      Thank you SO MUCH, my friend!!
      This one was more to the classical side. I'm glad you've liked it!!
      Cheers ...Q
      Thank you VERY MUCH for your feedback, my friend!!!
      Sometimes, when I harvest a cracked fork by mistake, I have to abandon the project.
      Very seldom I resort to the epoxy glue.

      Greetings, my friend!!!!
      Hope everything's going well!!!
      THANK YOU so much for your rewarding reply!!!!
      A kind of an experiment for me, in terms of finish. This type of wood seems to go along with this acrylic varnish. Definitely have to try it again.
      Glad to hear about you!!!
      Best regards ...Q
