Sir, congratulations on those frames!!
Simple, well-finished, stylish classical slingshots. What's not to like?? :D
Clever process of roasting the wood gives them great character. They seem to have endured pretty nicely the high temperatures.
By the way, very nice pictures (as you know, I'm also a fan of seasoned tree stumps as background!!)
Best regards ...Q
Thanks so much Q, love your work as well, and yes I love the backgrounds you use also.
That one I used is a Tulip Poplar we had cut down a good while ago, has some amazing color / spalting to it.

Absolutely beautiful! Such classic shapes.
How do you roast them and what kind of finish did you use?
Thanks so much Chris.....I just put them in a cheap toaster oven for 30 min sessions at 250, and did three sessions, watching them closely so as not to burn them, but the larger / darker one also got a session at 350 degrees

The finish on these is 3 coats of Minwax quick dry Gloss Poly from a rattle can, and buffed with a green scotchbrite pad after fully cured, then 2 coats of Johnson's paste wax rubbed in and buffed with a microfiber towel
