My son picked a fork up and asked me to do him a slingshot for hunting, i enjoyed making this one and it is very nice to the touch, it looks a lot nicer finish in real life, he wanted it just waxed with a red wax, here it is, jeff

Nice work; you've kept the natural look of the wood but made it more ergonomic.

Very Nice!!! Those are great naturals. I know some are afraid of eyehooks but I think there is minimum risk in using them.
Cheers!!!

i know what you mean about the eyes for the tubes, but the ones ive found are well in and a good glue, never had one pull out yet, i tried taking some out before to put gold coloured ones in and i couldnt get them out, jeff

Thats a nice slingshot I like the finish, what did you use?
£1 shop cheap wax and stainer all in one, ha ha, ust put a small bit on then gave it a good old rub, so you can still see the grain and bits of the white wood show up on the cut out bits, thats how he wanted it, he says its less slippy in the winter when its snown and raining, jeff

Beautiful slingshot and I like the use of free (the fork) and cheap (wax) materials in its creation. The true beauty of the natural fork slingshot is in its natural origins!

Nice, wish I could find a straight fork like that. Grass is always greener on the other side
