Joerg's video on the condom slingshot made me laugh out loud, and from there I stumbled upon this forum.
I've been making fishing lures (crankbaits, floaters, etc) for a few years, and because my tacklebox is overflowing I was stoked to get back into slingshots (I had quite a few daisy's as a kid).
Process: drew blueprints, used bandsaw, router, and finished it off with a dremel and sanding. Very fun process, I now see why so many of you have numerous slingshots. Next project... I might play around with some deer antlers or try a natural shooter.
Walnut soaked in Linseed Oil, with WD40 sparingly rubbed into it (experimenting)
Zebrawood + plywood (had scraps) finished with linseed oil and a polycrylic coating over the multiplex
I've been lurking a lot on all of the different posts, and it has been very informative and entertaining. If it weren't for you guys and all of the information posted here, I wouldn't have been able to design these two slingshots, or get the proper bands, etc.
