    So I'm fairly new to this whole slingshot carpentry thing, but I have loads of mechanical sympathy so I think I did good. That's for you to say <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> Bear in mind tough, with the exception of the phoenix and the howitzer, all of these slingshots were made with just a ROUND file and a saw (+ some sandpaper but that's it!).<br><br>Anyway, uploading the photos here takes too long so I have them on imgur. Here's the link:<br><br><a href="http://imgur.com/a/r0Fbv" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://imgur.com/a/r0Fbv</a><br><br>Enjoy! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">

    When images are stored on the Internet, for example Imgur no longer uploading anything. Just connect the link.<br><br> The crack on the phoenix, I would be very careful.<br><br> By the way, nice collection.

    looks good but the morhammer looks like it needs some sanding to round it out

    Did you put the Phoenix to the vise test? Seems like it is a boardcut. You want to make sure it will hold. <br><br>The design was made for Multiplex (hardwood plywood) and may not be safe for boardcuts.
