Okay folks, I'm reaching out to the fine craftsman here on the forum for help. You may recall seeing my mini bamboo hammer. I mentioned that I had a number of slingshots outlined on that bamboo cutting board for production. Since then, I've got 3 more that are in the finish process. But I have another that I just started doing the rough shaping on yesterday morning when I got my first, inevitable, break. Obviously with a board like this, it's hardly surprising that this happened, but I had found with the other 4 slingshots, this was not a problem. I think the difference here is partially due to the size of this one. This is a full hand-sized cut, so the stresses are going to be more obvious along the grain. The break you see below happened while using a drum sanding attachment on my drill press. It may have been the vibration of the sander, I'm not sure. It just appeared while I was working the rough shape. So, what do the experts think? Can it be repaired in a way that it can make this usable? My initial thoughts are that simply using glue or epoxy simply won't be strong enough. I know some folks have suggested in the past that you could cut this down the long axis and sandwich a metal or plastic blank. I've also see suggestions that would involve drilling through the slingshot and use some wooden dowels or even bolts to help hold it together. With regard to cutting it in half, I have neither a band saw nor a scroll saw, so I think that may be a bit tough to do. I do have a drill press but question whether my level of skill would allow me to accurately drill through this in a straight line. I'd like to hear your input. Fix it or scrap it?
