    Hey Guys,<br><br>holiday...and bad weather...so what to do? Building a Slingshot of course.<br><br>I tried to squeeze out the max out of what i head left of some parts.<br>I had a brasscore that was a bit to short, so the wide heads won´t fit.<br>So i tried a different style for the bandattachment. Works good, there is not much space, but since the heads are getting bigger at one point you just have to wrap the rubber around that part and it won´t slip of.<br><br>As woods i used dark black Ebony and Hornbeam. I tried to create a contrast between brass-black ebony-and the closetowhite hornbeam.<br><br>Since i had a small piece of 2mm brass left too, i wanted to do some spacers again.<br>Since i also had a pice of olivewood left i came up with the idea to make the handle all the way up to the fork and use the olive just for the heads...with 4 spacers between.<br><br>I had a really hard time to align all the 4 spacers to one straight line (looking from top and from bottom) but it worked quite well.<br><br>The shaping gave the Slingshot a very slim look, because the black ebony narrows the white outline of the hornbeam down.<br><br>Went for wax and oil again as finish because i like to leave the pores of wood open instead of sealing them forever...because of the dense woods and the brass it is quite heavy and has a silky touch...good feeling if you grip it <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br>Think i´m gonna take a break now, i have far more SS then i have time for shooting them now <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9"><br><br>Here are some pics as usual, hope you like them:<br><br><br>Front<br><img src="http://s1.directupload.net/images/120719/n4hphsu2.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><br><br>Back<br><img src="http://s14.directupload.net/images/120719/5zxlzwxf.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><br><br><br><br>Side<br><img src="http://s7.directupload.net/images/120719/uamksifx.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><br><br>overview<br><img src="http://s7.directupload.net/images/120719/rma2d9xu.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><br><br><br>Detail<br><img src="http://s7.directupload.net/images/120719/gpsw4tve.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><br><br>making of parts<br><img src="http://s7.directupload.net/images/120719/4w5agymz.jpg" border="0" alt="">
