    Near 70 today, but the wind was up - 20 mph gusting to 35. Better to work a natural fork than try to shoot!
    I cut this Osage Orange a couple of months ago - dead limb from a gnarly old tree.

    Stripped it down with the knife, worked it with the rasp, some filing, sanding with 150, and 220 grit. More sanding to come.

    Light from the setting sun really may her shine!

      That first pic looks so small compared what you drew out of it.

      You, Sir, have an eye.
      (Probably, two eyes, but happy birthday anyway. Ha! The weather man says I'll be in the 70s today, too. [emoji2936][emoji2935])

      That stick ain't mad it's a slingshot now, I guarantee it. [emoji16]

      Optical illusion! I was zoomed in pretty tight for the second photo, but had the full length of the WorkMate in the first!

      Very nice Ray. It's amazing what comes out of a old dead piece of wood. Sweet!

      Yeah, a gnarly old exterior can hide a beautiful soul. Anyhow, that's what I used to tell the waitress back in the day! LOL!
