    Made a quick run to the hardware store the other day to pick up some multiplex. Figured i'd try my hand at a few simple board cuts. Neither turned out quite like I wanted, but with some sanding both feel good in my hands, definetly better than the daisy wire frame i was practicing with. thanks...

    This was the first time I ever worked with spalted wood. The patterns and grain it brings out in wood is out of this world. The arbutus is from a downed tree in the middle of the woods. It was a hefty sized tree and it had fungi all over it. Shaped it to similar to joerg's moorhammer. The...

    Hi Everyone- This is my first effort at making a sling shot…a natural. I took the advice on the forum and purchased a few hand tools (coping saw, 4 in 1 rasp, knife, sandpaper) and this is the result. It is white oak and I sanded it through to P2500 and finished it with Dayhiker's method...
