    Okay. #1 is really cool. Are you in the U.K? If you are that is probably Hazel. Put that one in a box and re-visit it when you get more building time, Some laminates and swells on the shaft will be a good thing.

    That's a good start Noah. I agree with the others - I like #1 the best. Now they're done and all banded up, but let me ask you - how do they shoot?

    I like your slingshots. I dont want to be a debbie downer but ive just recently turned away from board cuts. Thats all I use to make. I had a few failures but I considered them all operator error. You know fork hits. But just yesterday I broke my favorite ss. 3/4 inch red oak. For no apparent reason. I glued it back together just so I could have it. I just wanted to give you my advice so you dont waste your time on a bunch of frames like I did.
