Beginner's Moorhammer, Medang Burlwood

A friend of mine wanted a beginner's version of te Moorhammer design. I made a wide forked frame (12 cm clearance between the fork tips).

He wanted blond wood, and I chose Medang burlwood, from Cambodia I think. The wood is amazing - because of the 3D effects. If you move and tilt the piece slightly, under a good light, the changing effects are stunning.

Multiplex core. Linseed oil finish.


  1. Very nice work,
    I perfer Steel but this slingshot looks very good


  2. So nice and shiny ,and so delicate !!
    I love it!
