I've been messing with the Joey J5 LBS. SlingNerd hooked me up with the material and this is the never-ending result.

First sling is my Target Tournament LBS. Flats only, maple laminate, and a knot from the tail of my Angry Rooster of a previous project.
The second sling is my LBS Gentlemen's Boot sling that I am still fussing with. If you ever see it again, it may look a little different.
I flashed the 3rd sling a few days ago and felt really happy with how simple and clean it came out. THEN I get a drill press and proceeded to create straight holes that are out of line!!! I was working late and up past my bedtime.
I am infatuated with the snare-wrap that Oldmiser showed me. It might be because it took me too long to figure out how a non-slotted hole in a fork tip would be something useful.
Even though I jacked the holes up on #3 I see that I can still band it up straight. I branded it to punish myself for rushing and not paying attention to what I wanted to accomplish. Mr. Brooks and J5 say we all need Two LBS...one for flats, and one for tubes. I figure another few tries and I'll be dialed in!
Thanks for gawking! MM

You really made that laminate shine with the grooves, Mo.

These pieces could stand in the ring with any custom sling on the forum on character alone and I don't think a soul would disagree with me.
Dang SNerd that is a huge compliment. Thanks again for the hot tips and materials on making nice things out of sticks! I believe I am inspired to keep on hacking!!
