I made a design a bit ago to work on and improve, that recently I turned into an oak boardcut. This is my first "proper" boardcut but I am working on a chalice boardcut, but with a twist
One of the things I look for in a finger/thumb braced catapult, is a nice "hook" for your...
Just thought i'd post my latest catapult. It's a aluminium hrawkeye with extended forks as for me the fork tips were just a little to thin (personal preference) banded with double red asda bands (cheap)
It didn't take long to make, just something that is strong and durable. I chose...
This is my first of hopefully many videos. A little target practise from 22ft, 9.5mm steel, Bill hays slingshot.
I am a pretty bad shot but learning every day. Sorry for the poor quality and camera positioning, will change on the next video. I didn't realise how zoomed in it was haha...
Well I'd been shooting pretty much all day from about 26ft, and being surprisingly accurate. I decided I'd do a test to see what damage could be caused by a fork hit.. Well I say fork hit... fork hits from distances of around 26ft, 13ft, 19ft etc.
I was using my Hays slingshot, set...
I've been working on a simple natural design recently and decided it was time to get the tools out and make it.
It is made out of an oak fork, sanded smooth, coated in BLO, and then coated in bees wax, and buffed to a shine.
It is number 1 out of approximately 5 I will make, as this...
Andy (akmslingshots) and myself had decided to have a little competition between the two of us on who can make the best natural fork in a given amount of time. We decided to open it to whoever wants to join in.
Who can make the best natural in a given amount of time...
Good Morning everyone!
Yesterday I decided to go out to the shed and work on another fork. The only problem was, I do not have any left!
The weather was terrible for a fork hunt, thunder and lighting followed by constant heavy rain!
I decided to take a terrible one I made before that I said...
I decided I would do a build log of how I go around completing a fork. This may not be the same as some of the others I do but it will give you guys an idea.
First of all I found a fork, it was orange in colour and had canted forks. Unfortunately I hadn't decided to do a build...
Heyyyyy you guys!
Just thought i'd post some pictures of the 2 latest naturals I have finished today.
They are both made from oak.
1)The first one started as a 6 inch wide fork, which I have carved and sanded into a comfy design.. a little like dayhiker's chalice (just no where near as...
Yesterday I went out on a little walk/fork hunt and came back with 6 forks. I dried one of them in the microwave, and decided i'd start to work on it today.
I decided to aim for a small sized catty, that can be carried easily in the pocket, well in my camo trouser pockets!
It was only...
