This is a slingshot I made the I use is eucalyptus (gum tree) and I caped the bottom with jarra.
These are both hard woods and finding a natural fork off a eucalyptus tree is very hard.
I used an oil finish. it took me two days to make this slingshot but I have not shot it yet.😄😄😄

Fantastic! The two woods work quite nicely together.
