This will be a shooter, nice job.  I have not looked up that wood, is it like mahogany?  Is the carve from a thick board?  Take care with heavy bands.  Sometimes, straight grain, in the fork well, right by the grip can let go, God forbid!

One of my first SS was from a beautiful maple board, rugged I thought, the right fork just flew off; thank God on the shot and not the draw. If you ever questioned it you could find a band saw, saw it right down the middle, front / back

epoxy in a 1/8" aluminum core, a quality plywood core and have nearly the same SS with added strength. -CD

Practice, practice, practice.

Stay consistent with ammo, handsets, draw, hold, release.
