    Hey Guys,<br><br>you may have seen the aluminum cores i cut out a few days ago.<br><a href="/t1351-some-cut-outs-i-did-today">http://theslingshotforum.forumotion.com/t1351-some-cut-outs-i-did-today</a><br><br>I placed them aside for a bit because i was working on a purple heart hammer with brass...but after that project was done i began with the two aluminium cores.<br><br>I decided to create true "utility" Slingshots...nothing for a showcase etc. just something to carry around in my pocket.<br><br>So i bought some Birch - Multiplex (15mm i think) and laminatd it to the 15mm aluminum cores.<br><br>The 6-circle Design was fully laminated to turn into a Hammerhead Design.<br>I love to hold that Hammerhead Shooters, such a perfect grip and balance.<br><br>Fot the smaller Core which i designed during a break i went for a double-palmswell.<br>Kinda like a mini hammerhead...or you can call it a "Palmhammer".<br><br>It´s really fascinating how good it fits. With Thumb and Indexfinger around the Aluminumframe (added Fingergrooves) that little shooter fits the Hand like a glove.<br><br>Was fun to work with those "soft" Materials after working with amaranth and brass...sadly there were a few empty spaces on the inside of the multiplex...i filled them with sawdust and epoxy but it was a little bit darker...well i can live with that.<br><br>Shaped the Wood with a Dremel, sanded it down to 600 and put on a lot of wax to make it waterproof. polished the wax afterwards to get a nice and silky finish.<br><br>I just took some pictures and will band it up in a few minutes. I hope you like them!?<br><br><img src="http://s14.directupload.net/images/120625/e43vy8oz.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><br><img src="http://s1.directupload.net/images/120625/ienmgqj2.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://s14.directupload.net/images/120625/x7dinsvb.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://s7.directupload.net/images/120625/j2z7pylh.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><br><img src="http://s7.directupload.net/images/120625/gqxt7s6v.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://s14.directupload.net/images/120625/h592q6ga.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://s1.directupload.net/images/120625/p4bt76gv.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>Well, of course there are always some other materials mixed into aluminum to achieve the attributes you are looking for, but that all happens in certain borders.<br><br>i think it might have to do with the way how you worked on it. those core were just milled and i only went over the survace a few times with sand paper.<br>polishing makes no sense imo, because it darkens the wood and you can´t avoid scratching it anyway. So keep trying, i bet you will come to a result you are satisfied with.<br><br><br><br><strong>Thanks</strong> to all of you and especcially to Lanuzzi <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9"><br><br>Going to post a few picks of that Purple-Hammer soon.</span>
