promising, go on!
This is my first time playing with oak. I liked the way it cut. I'll see how it shapes. So far, my least favorite has been mahogany.I like your wood choices. Ive used up all my oak and walnut on past slingshot builds. They have to get ugly before they can become beautiful. keep us posted on the progress of this little Caterpillar.
Thanks! That's exactly what I do with the water, as I progress into finer grits and get closer to finish.Cool, a lot has changed for the better. The core is nice it looks like it could have been laminated. If you get it wet(water) it will give you an idea of the finish color if you dont use any stain. It will also raise up any tiny burs as it dries. This will make for a much smoother finish as you step up with the finer and finer sand paper. rinse and repeat.
