    Hello everybody!

    I hope all is going well for you all. I just finished another SS and thought I would post it.

    I put an aluminum core in it and I am quite happy with my first attempt. Aluminum takes a little more effort, but I have plans for more of them!

    No, I haven't shot it yet, I barely let the Tru-oil dry! [​IMG]

    Thanks again to everybody for the inspiration provided through this forum. I would appreciate constructive criticism if you think of ways to make improvements.

    I hope you guys like it, and thanks so much for looking.

    Darren

    Here is my Aluminum Wunderbar:

    Constructive criticism? I don't know that you need it with this piece. That's a really beautiful laminate. A nice version of the Scout design. Just a really impressive piece of work. Nicely done.

    Here's your constructive criticism- make more slingshots! Awesome work, Bro! You've got more bars of color than a '55 Oldsmobile! That takes effort for sure!

    That looks amazing! If you don't mind me asking, do you have a blueprint for that? I would love to make a slingshot like that.

    Guys and gals,

    Thanks for the comments. Unfortunately I don't have a pdf for this. The palm swell is a combination of maple and purpleheart. The main body uses walnut, aluminum, and cherry.

    Thanks again,

    Darren

    Constructive criticism: I would add some rubber and a pouch and go shooting.
    All jokes aside - wow that's a beauty!

    This is a stunner! Great wood combination and the aluminum core laminate looks very professional. If you hadn't claimed it as your first, it would seem you have practiced with many more prior.

    Alukuchen, I've seen your videos, seems to me you've got all the patience and skill you need and you would still have some left over for another project. Thanks for the compliment.

    thanks so much

    I'm trying to take your advice, hopefully tomorrow, thanks
