Second Persimmon Shooter

I promised to return one of the four Persimmon forks John sent me from Texas in the form of a finished slingshot. So I made a nice shooter yesterday!

Hammerhead handle, slightly more fat than usual, and a fork that is a bit higher and thicker than my extreme frames (I think John might prefer that).

This fork is entirely free from cracks, the result of very careful microwave drying.

As you can see, the fork was thick, but not straight. I had to place my cuts very carefully, but the results are really nice.
