    Here is one just finished. I had a blank of walnut/birch ply/padauk laying about, so I spiced it up with a little wenge and some of this black stuff I've been calling ebony. If anyone can tell me if there are any other pretty much pitch black woods that this may be, please let me know. Thanks...

    Hey-O, Here is a boardcut I put together for a trade with Mr. B. Toon. You may have seen this in his post under general slingshot discussion. I debated over putting another thread here with it, but I figured it had a place here in the homemade section. When B-toon asked if I wanted to do a...

    Here is my newest boardcut. Keep in mind that I am just getting into as making. I grew up in my Grandfather's wood shop. While my tools and talent aren't nearly what his are, some of what he taught me is coming back. I decided to try a different finish technique so these picks are pre...
