Finally I've finished working on this crazy slingshot. I would have never stopped to remove wood until I got a frame easy to hold. I think that it fits the right hand much better than the left one. Four stones were included by the root during its growth. I banded with TB 4 cm. wide, but I believe it's too strong, better would be 3 cm. wide tapered. Anyway I will try to get some shots to see how it works.
A collector's unique piece of poplar root. I hope you like it. Thanks for watching. Bob.

well Bob? now theres a great question, having one of your piece's in my collection i know they are very functional as slingshots, and since it occupies a place on my display it is also art. this one is even bigger, more contours, the cool rocks, just more all around character than mine, i would not be able to separate one from the other.

best wished my friend

Thank you everybody for your feedbacks. These roots are sculptures themselves made by nature and this is what I like. The challenge is to follow the shape that nature gave to the fork and turn it in a nice frame at the sight, soft and warm to the touch and able to shoot ammos or rocks.
