Hey folks,

I just finished up this SlingShark. I used cherry and walnut with brass pins. I went with a semigloss-satin tru-oil finish. I'll probably add some wax tomorrow. I'm still waiting on fiber optic rods in the mail and then I'll add my little two wire sight as well.

My wife said I should take the pics over the black cloth to help the color to "pop". Hope you like it!

@Brhumbus the Terrible
Do you make a right hand hold version?
When I eventually order an @Island made pfs frame, maybe you could send one to him for me and a piggyback delivery to Australia.🙃
I haven't yet, but I have a nice long weekend starting tomorrow.

Do you prefer one version over the other? I'll call them blonde and brunette. The brunette is easier for me because there's less surface area of lighter colored woods when it comes to cleaning out the wood pores. But I can handle either or. I think birch is a little whiter and less amber colored after I use the tru-oil compared to the cherry.

Woah there mate, slow down a tad.:) Not ready to proceed yet.

I do so like the blond version but would require a couple of mods, like snobbed tips and the bandtie grooves continued around the outside faces.

Thanks for the interest and will let you know when ready.(y)

BTW the brunette is gorgeous too..... undecided.
Lol, sorry, I wasn't trying to push you into a commitment of any kind. I'll look up those snobbed tips though.

No problem, I'm always happy/excited to build something for you.

That looks great Alex, you did a fine job.

I’m agreeing with the Missus on this as the wood color does pop against the black backdrop , only thing missing is the pile of nice, shiny ammo sitting beside it, lol…..kind of like [mention]Sharker [/mention] uses in his presentation pics.

Nice work! 👍

You tell the wife that you'll take pictures however you wish ! Who wears the panties over there?? :p
Lol, she only wears panties on special occasions. She's actually started wearing my briefs when we go to work because they're more comfortable. I don't mind as long as she orders more in my size. I'm not sharing my socks though!
