    I got bored of work last weekend so i dug out a bit of ply wood and made made a Joerg S six circles slingshot. I kept the finish pretty simple, just put a bit of wood stain on it and made a leather grip. I'm really pleased with the way it came out <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><img src="http://i41.servimg.com/u/f41/17/11/17/74/img_2811.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    whoops that didn't last long, only just got bands on it yesterday and broke it today. I somehow shot the fork, I was using 16mm lead and gamekeeper bands. lucky I didn't shoot finger support style my finger would have snapped instead of the fork!!!<img src="http://i41.servimg.com/u/f41/17/11/17/74/photo_10.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i41.servimg.com/u/f41/17/11/17/74/photo_11.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    That's a real shame. Save the leather and make another one.
