Greetings Everyone!!!!

Here's one latest slingshot I've made. Of a small/medium size with a rather long handle, suitable for finger brace or hammer grip styles. Made with carving knife and sandpaper on cork oak (Quercus suber) wood, it was finished with linseed oil and shellac. It sports a set of Tex-Shooter latex bands and a leather pouch, homemade by a friend.

It's shape, initially, reminded me of a chicken wishbone!! So, I called her "Wishbone" :)

Hope you like it!!

Thanks for watching ...Q

I try to live right, Rapidray :D

Many thanks for your feedback!! This one was not been tried yet, but it's more a right hand holder than left.

Nevertheless, I think I'm gonna shoot it fine!!

Cheers ...Q

I like the long handle for hammer grip option.
That's a great looking shooter. I am jealous!

Thank you all for your comments guys (and girl!!!!) :D

Since I've registered in these Forums, I've encountered nothing but encouragement and friendship from it's members :wave:

By the way, this was one of the simplest and prettiest that I've lately carved. Actually, pictures don't do it full justice. I guess that's one aspect that I have to study: photography :D

Cheers to all ...Q

Thanks a lot, my friend!!!

Actually, my Sunday was good :) It was the weather here that has been very bad. Lots and lots of rain and strong wind. Hence no shooting today :banghead:

Cheers ...Q
