Greetings SlingshotForum friends!!

I present my latest work, this natural slingshot carved from an olive tree fork (Olea Europaea, wild variation) and finished with linseed oil and natural beeswax.

Another shooter to experiment with my new batch of Theraband Gold. I've been cutting new tapers and they seem to work very well with this slingshot.

The Portuguese word "Amuleto" translates as "good luck charm". It is also the title of one of my favourite Flamenco themes by maestro Paco Cepero :)

Hope you guys like it!!

Thanks for watching.

A good friend and I were just talking this morning that it's sure nice to have you back on the forum. Besides their obvious beauty, your frames just have a welcoming look and a soft looking feel. If I saw this one sitting with 10 others it would be easily identified as yours. This olive is outstanding my friend.
Oh sir....

...There were two people talking about me thousands of miles apart. And wishing me well.

What can I say??

You, sir are AMAZING!!! :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:

Can't thank you enough for your kindness. I'm glad you've liked this shooter, but that it is just a detail...

What's important is this FRIENDSHIP we have in the slingshot world, which surpasses frontiers and unite the most different of people.

Best wishes for you and yours!!!! May life bring you the fortune you desire to others!!

Best regards :wave:

Beautiful !
Thank you so much, sir!!!! I'm glad you've dropped by :)

Hope everything's fine!

Best regards ...Q

Very nice work! Seems like a real comfortable frame too
Thanks for the feedback!!

Yes, it is comfortable, at least for my hand size and for thumb support shooting style. I had nice results with it in my first shooting session :)

Cheers ...Q

Thats stunning - also got lucky with the knot - looks like it was planned.
Hello my friend!!!

How's everything?? Hope you're fine :) Compliments to the family and kids!!

And THANK YOU so much for the feedback!!!

Yes, the knot was indeed very well placed :D Do you believe that I've only noticed that in the photos??

There's a whirlpool of sawdust and wood chips in your mind when you're carving it!! You don't see nothing besides the design you have in mind LOL!!

Best regards ...Q

That looks amazing, I need one of your creations in my hands. You always create some of the finest catty's that I have seen. Keep up the good work my friend.
Oh my friend!!!! MANY THANKS for your kind reply!!! :wave:

Regarding that wish of yours, it is an honour for me to be fulfilled. No problem at all!

I really am admired by your fondness towards my work. I accept it with respect.

We'll be in touch, sir!!

Best regards ...Q
