Hello everyone,
I've made a tutorial, how to make a natural.
WARNING! IF YOU DIDN'T DRY THE NATURAL LONG ENOUGH, IT MIGHT SPLIT AFTER DEBARKING
Here's What you'll need:
Dried Branch, Rasp, Files, Knife, Pencil, Saw, Sandpaper (120; 240; 600;), Linseed oil, Patience, Practice.
1st step: Debarking the branch.
2nd step: Carving the basic shape of the slingshot
3d step: Filing the shape, sanding with grit 120.
4th step: Cutting of the forks, handle.
5th step: Sanding with 240, rounding the edges on forks, handle
6th step: Sanding with 600 (check if there are any scratches, little wood pieces sticking out. If there are, back to step 5)
7th step: Finishing the slingshot by sinking it into linseed oil for 24 hours . (wipe the oil off the slingshot with paper towel after taking out of oil and wait for a few days to dry)
8th step: Enjoy!

Here's a video about it, watch in HD for epic quality:

Thanks for checking!
