Hi SlingshotForum friends!!

I present another homemade slingshot. Again carved in cork oak wood with saw and carving knife and finished with linseed oil and shellac. This time was a especial fork that I've catched on my last batch of cork oak forks. This one was in trasition for spalting, yet the wood maintained a considerable strength. So, with the finishing, this fork acquired a nice honey-like coloration, which reminded me of some wood pieces they carve in the North African handicraft ...hence the name "Moroccan"

Hope you like it!! Thanks for watching.

Cheers ...Q

Aaahhhhhh! Freak'in awesome. Cork Oak is awesome.
Many thanks for liking it, Beanflip!! :wave:

Cork oak is indeed fantastic for slingshot making. In the right conditions, it's a very sturdy and solid material, yet light and easy to carve. It receives well oils and other finishing products. However, you have to pick it in the right time because once in the ground, it's very prone to fungus and decay.

Cheers ...Q

Another beauty from the Q-man. The oak grain you have in Europe is quite stunning and more pronounced to anything I have found here in the States. Add your touch of skill and craftsmanship, well, simply beautiful. Toque de mestre. g
