Haha, sorry!
I have a tendency to forget some of the questions I ask. Could be because I follow a lot of threads and regularly check out new ones. I'll follow your link. Thanks for the help!

Edit: Just realised it was kind of ironic that I didn't "multi-quote" this post...

Thanks for the answer. I think Jeb's way is a bit faster though.

Awesome video and slingshot!
To make it a bit easier to glue up your plywood strips: Lets say you need 100 little square pieces to make the scales and that requires 10 strips. Instead of cutting all the single strips into the little, separate squares and gluing them together, glue the 10 strips together. This will make a solid piece, 10 strips wide. Then cut this block in two, stack, glue end to end, repeat. This will give you a more efficient way of gluing and clamping. Less finicky than trying to glue little tiny squares. Hope this makes sense.

Thanks for the tip. I did think of this after gluing it all toghether, but it wasn't of much use then. I also found it much faster to cut the plywood at a 45 degree angle on the mitre saw, compared to doing it with a jigsaw. Didn't bother including it in the tutorial, because I found it out while editing the video.

That great, Jon. Don't ya love when the "Ah ha" moment comes after yer finished. I'd was going to mention the 45's on the miter saw, but didn't want to get too carried away with suggestions.
You might like using Baltic Birch Plywood too as it has nice thin layers. Others on here use it. Likely would not require cutting at a 45 like with the standard/builders grade fir you're using. If you can get it where you live and it's not out of budget. Great thinking, though, to cut it at 45* to get the look you want!
