Hello fellow shooters!!!
Never give up on a fork ... At least, that's my motto!! Especially if it's a fork from a dear friend...
I've received many months ago an oak fork from Btoon. I've carved it with jest and joy, but I've always think that fork would deserve a more proper design.
So, I've renewed the oak piece to this little shooter...What a nice wood to work. Soft to the blade, yet resiliant!!
Many thanks again to Btoon for this lovely gift ...This time stays as it is!!!! What do you think, mates!

Thanks for watching.

Beauty. I'm working on one now that has a short handle. How does that feel? I assume you hold it with a finger/thumb brace?
Thanks Sherman!!!
Actually, I hold slingshots sideways and hammer grip. Believe it or not, this little oakie is one of the best hammer grip handles that I have.
Cheers!!

Lovely, Q! Much better than mine. You can relax, buddy, I don't think I can top your shooters and I'm happy to keep it that way.

That looks like a piece of Live Oak. Knowing where Brandon lives, I would feel comfortable betting a dollar on it. Did he tell you what it was?

HOLY COWWWWW!!!!!!!!! Q that is stunning! That is really really really awesome! And Joe, I'm still learning to ID all the oaks out here, but it probably was a bluejack.

love that freakin' fork gap bro! that is excellent carving and craftsmanship! You have such an eye for sculpting symmetry! What did you use to finish the fork? Little bit of BLO? It has a gorgeous warm tone.

I'll skip the dollar, if you dont mind ...Just make a video of a dollar being dented by one of your PFS's. Fair enough?

Cheers!!
