Default Tell me how to use my wood *wink*

Hi, I've cut out two taow hammer template a while ago and didn't complete the slingshot as I had and still have no idea how to laminate it.
(This would be my first laminate with more than 2 kind of woods)
So here I am. Sitting with sightly flamey ash, spatled oak, walnut, laburnum, bamboo and plywood.
Do someone have a good Idea of how I should put them together?

Let's STICK to the wood shall we?
Pun intended
I'd like to fill the space between my glue layers with wood and not the opposite

As bigdh2000 said, use the plywood as the core and glue everything to it with a liberal amouth of woodglue. I would glue and clamp one piece of wood at the time. For the order of woods and such that is completely up to you!

Tip: sand the wood before glueing and wipe squeezeout away after clamping, this saves time on the cleanup.

Hmmm maybe putting the plywood in the back could look good aswell. And it would still add strenght.
I'll photoshop it and maybe in two or three weeks you'll see it in the show your homemade section

The title suggests you missed having a certain talk with a parent...
