    Mrs Osborne was chucking out the old chopping boards... I had other ideas!<br>- just need to cut them out, glue & clamp together, sand and pin and I'll have a couple more slingshots to sell!<br>I'll post pics once finished<br><img src="a%20href=" border="0" alt=""><img src="http://i1301.photobucket.com/albums/ag106/MrOzzyOsborne/IMAG1974-1_zpsf42dc1cf.jpg" border="0" alt="">" border="0" /><img src="a%20href=" border="0" alt=""><img src="http://i1301.photobucket.com/albums/ag106/MrOzzyOsborne/IMAG1976-1_zps9cec361a.jpg" border="0" alt="">" border="0" />

    They'll be two three layer slingshots, wooden boards on the outside, plastic in the middle, pinned with brass rivets

    What glue will you use to for that? I heard plastic doesn't stick very well.

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>Same here.. But I saw *one* slingshot where plastics & wood was glued together. So, it's possible, but probably quite hard..</span>

    I've never laminated wood and plastic together before, I was going to glue with 2 part epoxy glue, clamp it together and hope! I was also going to 'pin it' with brass rivets as well.

    Hi Ozzy,<br>no problem with epoxy.<br>Do it...and make some pics for us <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15"><br><br>PS If you want to glue metall, scratch the epoxy with a wire brush on the metall surface.

    Great idea!! Can' t wait to see the final product.<br>I think epoxy+pins+scraches( on both, wood and plastic) will be ok. Just be careful not to scratch them at the sides.

    cool, cheers guys. I'm gonna glue the 'chopping' sides as they are scored anyway from knives. I'll epoxy the pins in too!

    Maybe threaded rivets instead of pins to provide some squeeze. I'd think that UHMD cutting board would be tough to bond to anything. I've used it as bearing surface in swivel seat stools. It's really slick.

    My experience tells me that with two-component epoxy, and the right amount, you can glue pretty much anything.
