Once, Toivo and Eino were building a house, but as Toivo worked, he would occasionally throw a nail over his shoulder. When Eino asked why he was being so wasteful, he said, “The heads are on the wrong side!” Eino looked at him and said, “You dummy, those are for the other side of the house!”

Niceee!  Seems massively built, even more so that other Balearics I've seen.

Now I know what to do with all the iguanas running around here!

A new model, combining some design features from the Pacific islands, Balearic slings, and a few of my own. This is a simple trial prototype.

Take a good look at the home page  Wink
Anyway, Archaics Arms, your sling is beautiful.
In this case, the French say : "great minds meet".
Cheesy
