These are the first natural forks i have made thus far, and may I say I have had so much fun making them. Both are made form gum tree wood, and the ergo design came from an enormous fork that i processed heavily with a knife. The two slings are not complete yet, as i still need to finish sanding them, and add a coat of finish on them. I aim to attach flat bands on both slingshots, however i haven't got any yet. The slingshot that I am currently using is a simple woodcut that uses tubular rubber, it does the job for now, and the bands are great.

Any advice or feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Wow, you have certainly made it your own. We here know what effort goes into personalizing a catty. Well done.

I too am drawn to the first one because of the personalizing of it.

Wow!


Excellent job caring J, that is a fantastic product.......sometimes it's amazing what can come from a little pocket knife, time, and some imagination.

I love naturals, and those two are my kind of forks combining simplicity and ergonomics. You will find that there are near infinite possibilities in a nice thick natural, and also despite its lack of carving, the simple fork will probably be just a comfortable to shoot.

Great effort, great result...you are off to an excellent start and you will enjoy those forks.

Cheers -John

Both are doubtlessly going to be excellent shooters. You've got a good eye for what a fork should look like. But that ergo is amazing!

I wager we're going to see some great stuff coming from you in the future, if you get the bug.
