Hello SSF friends!!!
I present here another work. Probably the last of this year (2012)

This time, I've worked with a type of wood that I've never has seen before: a Mountain Laurel (Kalmia latifolia) fork. It was part of a trade that I've made some months ago. To be honest, I was a little afraid of working the fork, since I've read in the Web that Mountain Laurel wood is extremely toxic!! I guess they overreact everything. I've worked it without mask, but in the open air, and, as far as I can tell, I'm okay. I can say that is a very, very nice wood to work!! I've finished the slingshot with a piece of a very seasoned cork oak branch.
By the way, the pouch was homemade (long time I didn't do any ...I'm completely hooked on Rayshot pouches!!!)
Hope you like it

Cheers ...Q

Thank you friends for your nice feedback!!!! It is indeed a nice one to hold (although the handle has a slight curvature more adequate for left hand grip, but is also very suitable for the right hand)
Cheers and good Holidays ...Q
