New slingshot from common dogwood
After the slingshot cannon, I really only had like one evening time to make one more frame before I have to go on a weeklong business trip to Berlin.
I took one of my common dogwood naturals that I harvested a few weeks ago, sawed it into a rough shape and microwaved the remaining moisture out of it. Then I took the knife and rasp to it.
After the polishing, I saw some small cracks, very normal for a hardwood like that. No big deal, simply filled them with epoxy.
Banded it up with a triple TB Gold butterfly bandset, ready to achieve energy levels over 90 Joules.
