Hi folks.
For those of you that like natural forks, This manzanita is nice.
Manzanita grows only in the high sierras of California, and Nevada, as far as I know.
This partictuclar piece is unique because of the separation of the sapwood, and heartwood.
Manzanita is a very stong wood, and comparable to Iron wood, and osage, as far as strength, in a natural fork.
I love this fork because it feels so good in my hand.
I have it set up with 5/8 rubber, flatbands, at 8 inches from pouch to forks.
She shoots really fast, and quite accurate at 15 yds.
A fine slingshot, up for grabs.
A real keeper, if no interest.
A really gnarly, fork.

NOW THAT IS DIFFERENT! Very cool Tom! Love the Heartwood vein going through it on the one branch. Manzanita Rocks! (and yes sometimes it does have actual rocks mixed in the roots) Cool! Flatband

Sweet! Makes me want to drive up to Palomar or Cuyamaca and get some Manzanita!
Hi folks

Here is another Manzanita fork, I made today.
A natural ergo for sure. I like the way it fits, as it kind of wraps around your hand.
I was out shooting it today, and she shoots good. I have it set up with 5/8 AR rubber.

Yeah Tom,

There is a character about that one's look and shape as you can tell by all the comments that is has appeal! Great find, and hope the kid that had to have it keeps his appreciation for it. I admire your works.
