    I minimized the size of this one to try to bring the point of impact up as much as reasonably possible. You can see it compared to one I made that is closer to a scout XT frame. Olive wood is nice to work with - really tight grain, has a unique smell when sanding it.

      What do you use on the fork tip for the sight reference? Never seen it done that way before

      I just picked up a small piece of 1/8" "safety orange" G10 material - its pretty visible.

      Hmmmm, I can't say it made me hungry ... smell when sanding it was nice - not as sweet as cocobolo or walnut though - really like the smell of those. So far the only wood I've used that didn't smell very appealing when machining it was padauk
