Hello to the Slingshot Forum!

Tonight I present to you all a marvelous work of art. A slingshot so beautiful it took my breath away.

A casual trade was arranged between Quarterinmynose and myself. Fresh new caddy for a fresh new caddy. Pretty simple. I told QIMN, no stress, no rush... etc. In around 20 days he mails his and I mail mine a couple days later....

His slingshot arrived today!
I open the package and was stunned. I said some cursewords too. Things like holy f*** this is f****** awesome!
I can't believe I am now the owner of this work of art. The slingshot I sent QIMN is not worthy!
(You should get mine by Sat. QIMN! )

THE SLINGSHOT:

It is a combo of buckeye burl (gorgeous galaxy looking wood), wenge, canarywood forks and a burl/wenge horizontal stack laminate palm/fingerswell with ebony spacer.
Then reverse side is verticle laminates of wenge, canarywood and paduak. The core of the slingshot is yellowheart and balticbirch. It is finished with many coats of CA glue. And is so freakin' shiny I can see myself in it! There is not ONE tool mark on this slingshot. Not ONE scratch. It came banded with TBG AND a super sure pouch!!!! What a guy! I have put 3 accurate shots through it and then had to have a photo session! I will now let the pictures I took speak for themselves....

There are not enough words to praise QIMN for the craftsmanship and effort he put into this trade. Which PS was his first ever! I will treasure this slingshot and can honestly say on this trade, I am the big winner! This guy knows how to work some wood!
Thanks Chad.

Something about that North Carolina State! Not only the furniture capital of the U.S but it looks like they breed top shelf slingshot craftsmen too! Hey Quarter,you aced that frame Bud! That is a salad of exotic wood blended to perfection. SO COOL!!!! Flatband

Outstanding. The craftsmanship is impeccable. Quarterinmynose put much effort into that peice of excellence. And that effort shows in the final product. The buckeye burl changing colors under certain light? That is really something. Well done.
