Hello folk!

Long time from last post, let me show you my fresh work. It's finally done
clear.png
:), one of my most luxurious slingshots. The wolf's head is carved out of cow bone. Frame itself is laminated and made of wenge, bloodwood, maple, African blackwood, mammutwood, red mallee burl, and chechen burl pieces. Sanded down to 2,500 grit, puffed with compound and finished with varnish.

I think I know what happened here... *cue fiddles*

The Devil went down to Estonia,

He was looking for a soul to steal.

He was in a bind,

Cause he was way behind,

And he was willing to make a deal.

Well the devil came across this young man

Sawing up a board and carving it hot,

And the devil jumped up on a hickory stump

And said "Boy let me tell you what.

I guess you didn't know it,

But I'm a slingshot maker too,

And if you care to take a dare I'll make a bet with you.

Now you make a pretty good slingshot boy,

But give the devil his due,

I bet a slingshot of gold against your soul,

Cause I think I'm better than you"

The boy said "My name's Sharker,

And it might be a sin,

But I'll take your bet

An' you're gonna regret it '

Cause I'm the best there's ever been."

Sharker rosin up your bow, and work your materials hard,

Cause hell's broke loose in Estonia and the Devil deals the cards

And if you win you get this shiny slingshot made of gold,

But if you loose the devil gets your soul

The devil opened up his case,

And he said "I'll start this show",

And fire flew from his fingertips

As he cleaned off his saw,

Then he pulled the bow across the stock

And it made a evil hiss,

And a band of demons joined in

And it sounded something like this...

When the devil finished, Sharker said

"Well you're pretty good ol' son,

But sit down in that chair right there

An' I'll show ya how its done!"

And he made fire in the mountain, run boys run,

The devil's in the house of the rising sun,

Wolf's head in the handle to rake in that dough,

Mister does the wolf bite? No child, no.

Then the Devil bowed his head

Because he knew that he'd been beat,

And he laid that golden slingshot

On the ground at Sharker's feet.

Sharker said "Devil just come on back

If you ever want to try again

I done told you once you son of a gun

I'm the best that's ever been

He made fire in the mountain, run boys run,

The devil's in the house of the rising sun,

Wolf's head in the handle to rake in that dough,

Mister does the wolf bite? No child, no.
