For work, but mainly for lack of good spirits, I spent some months without manufacturing and without using slingshots. This week I wanted to start picking up a bit on the subject and took a young fork from Bocote. With a hatchet and a machete, I removed the excess volume from the fork to carve a piece designed for the left hand. The gap posts are square and measure about 2.5 cm per side. Barely working on # 80 sandpaper. I'll go slowly to warm up my hand before grabbing a couple of huge pieces of Ziricote and Bocote that I've had in storage for almost a year.
I also want to finish a couple of little forks that I had abandoned. Especially one that was sent to me from Baja California Sur (it literally traveled from end to end of Mexico).
