My niece and her loverboy gave me some nice wood for christmas... a type that I never used before.
Honduras Palisander, stored and dried for over 25 years, meant for musical instruments (flutes).
See it on the vendor page
The wood is incredibly hard, I had to buy a new band saw blade before I could start...
wanted a slingshot that can stand upright (inspired by Zwillie's avatar
beauty). So I added a "foot" to the proven Moorhammer handle. A bit
thicker and more round than usual - I like experiments.
The wood polished well. In normal light, it looks even darker! The rest of the wooden block can be seen in the pics, too.
