hey folks.. how's it going... just thought i would post a quick hello... this forum kept popping up while i was searching for info. online.. my name is Mike and i live in the coastal redwoods of the Santa Cruz mtns.. we are family of Traditional Archers... i have been an avid trad. bow shooter/bowhunter for many years.. my wife and both our boys are all longbow shooters as well.. my boys (ages 5 & 12) started shooting longbows at age of 5.. they rock.
with the exception of our bows, i make all of our archery tackle, arrows, strings and leather goods.. i am also a self proclaimed knife junkie and do a lot of custom sheath work.. i frequent a few other knife/bushcraft realted forums..

i am farily new to the sport of slingshots and look forward to learning more about the sport.. though i grew up shooting wrist rockets, i recently put in an order for 3 custom wood catty's, from Tom over at www.bunnybuster.com one fork for me and 2 naturals for my 2 boys... i am really looking forward to checking them out and i'm sure they won't be my last..

cheers.. Mike

Welcome. I, like you, have been involved in traditional archery for the last 10 years. I make all my own equipment, but after making 40 or so bows was ready for something new. I have been into slingshots 1 month, and have made 4, 2 more in the works. It is a blast. There is a lot of wisdom and very helpful guys on this site.

Mike,
Not 100% sure...but I think they are birch.
Yours is old growth, curly black walnut.

Lovely Bows! I've always wanted to try my hand at traditional archery! Anyway you shouldn't struggle even with the most powerful slingshots!

Welcome from an ex- Santa Cruz Mountain dweller. I lived off of Black Road for 8 years and had an archery range in the back yard. I too make and shoot archery equipment. I love your bows, nice work.
Unfortunately, I live in San Jose now and don't shoot as much as I like.

You will like it here!
