Another Dayhiker inspired design made by Gib

Decided to post this here considering this is a custom slingshot

So couldnt resist making another dayhiker design, This time instead of doing just a plain old boardcut I took a small branch of some sort of ironwood that grows native to my area, Split it down the middle and used each half to make a palmswell. The addition of the palmswell I find makes this design extremely confortable to hold especially with the scalloping done right where the handle meets the fork. This makes it very easy to wrap fingers around secure and snug. Stained dark walnut with 3 coats of semi gloss poly.

Another gorgeous slingshot design will certainly be a keeper in my collection.
