This is my first natural fork and is made out of huizache, a plant similar to mezquite. I carved it from a very large branch, I found on the streets, it was cut maybe two days before I got my hands on it. I used the burn method to dehydrated the branch, but I did not do it right, so after I finished it started to show cracks in diferent places, specially at the end of the poles. I still like it alot and I know because is huizache and its thickness that is not going to break. I made it very ergonomic to my left hand, so it fits me very nice. I have to reconize that my first slingshot natural proyect failed. Since is very pale in color, I named it after a cartoon caracter very popular in Mexico, named "La Catrina" a drawing from the master Guadalupe Posada. La Catrina is a wealthy lady dress with a Victorian hat and is all but bones or dressed with a Victorian dress. This is also my aportation to the Mexican ancient celebration of "Dia de muertos" (Day of the dead). Greeetings...
