Hello my friends!!
I present my latest one. An handmade carved fork of lemon wood (Citrus x limon) that I've harvested some 4 months ago, with a somewhat ergonomic handle.
Very nice material to work and make slingshots with. Sturdy wood yet maleable. I worked with coping saw, pocket knife and sandpaper. Finished this time with teak oil and shellac. Banded with TB Silver (tappered) and a nice Rayshot pouch.
Very accurate one, hence the name "Clockwork"

Hope you like it!!
Cheers ...Q

That is a beautiful piece ... I love the warm tone of the wood.

Cheers ....... Charles
Thank you sir!!!! Shellac is a nice finish. Always gives an extra zest to the natural tone of the wood.

Sooo nice Q-man. The wood, the shape, the finish. A total package. Your woodworking talent is quite awsume. A different theme from your usual work, and it is humbling to look at. Senhor excelente trabalho.
