Hello Slingshot enthusiasts! I haven't posted too much on the forums and I've been meaning to work on a few slingshots of my own. I've made around 2 or so more than I'm showing, but they broke due to poor handling from friends :/<br><br><img src="http://i.imgur.com/r7ZrP.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br>This is my current collection! We have a Maple Hammerhead, a plywood Phoenix, Tsunami, Pocket Rocket .. 2?, a Dragon, and a Blood wood/Plywood side style shooter. I don't intend on selling any of the designs made by other people. These were simply for me with designs found on the internet.<br><br><img src="http://i.imgur.com/1hSVY.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br>This is my first slingshot. I made it out of this cool plywood my neighbor had. I'm really proud of it because it was made with just a rasp and bandsaw. Now that I have a router to use I don't have to worry about rounding by hand anymore.<br><br><img src="http://i.imgur.com/ryYkI.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br>Ahh the Hammerhead. The reason I got into slingshots was because of this fantastic design. Although there are some nicks here and there I am ridiculously proud of this one. I made it for my dad for his birthday! I'm currently making a Acacia/Maple Hammerhead, but I'm really lazy and don't want to rasp the fork.<br><br><img src="http://i.imgur.com/OeNd5.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br>I'm unsure of whose design this is, but it is named the Tsunami and it's ok. After making and shooting it, I'd probably tweak it a bit. It doesn't feel 100% comfortable in my hand.<br><br><img src="http://i.imgur.com/fu0aN.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br>This is the Pocket Rocket by Gamekeeper John. He posted the design online, and I was really interested in making one for myself. Like I said, I won't sell any of the designs shown. It's his design, not mine.<br><br><img src="http://i.imgur.com/tUDNB.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br>Of course I had to make a Dragon! I love this design. It fits my hand well and just looks classy.<br><br><img src="http://i.imgur.com/r0qYZ.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://i.imgur.com/kicyZ.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br>This one was experimental. I haven't made a laminate of any kind so I gave it my best shot. It's made of Blood wood and just a sheet of plywood. The design was on a youtube video from Flippinout slingshots that I thought looked cool, so I made a variant.<br><br>All of these slingshots were so much fun to make and shoot, I can't stop myself from making them. My weakness in making them is the finish. I sand them down to 400 grit, then I use a tung oil to finish it. I put about 5 or so coats on which is around half the amount I should put on them XD But I get so excited I cut the finish process in half so I can shoot my new toy :]<br><br>After trying out different designs I can say I like the finger support style way better. Also after buying a bit of Blood wood and Purple Heart, I picked up some nice Zebra wood, Wenge, and Padouk :]<br><br>They come in 3/4" boards and I need to resaw them. How do you guys go about making laminates? Do you just resaw them with a bandsaw? Is there someone I can get to do it for me for a more precise cut?
