    My First slingshot ever. I have been inspired by The Art of Weapons and Joerg Sprave to make a slingshot. I call it the "Tiger Slingshot" because of the stripes and the dark finish that the oil created. It also has a palm swell and some finger grooves. Please comment and feel free to give me some tips

    Yup, that's a good start. Joerg recently did a video on making a Rambone out of multiplex and he teaches a lot of tricks to prevent tear-out, evening the joinery, etc-

    You're heading in the right direction and I'm looking forward to seeing how your style develops from here.

    Indeed! My first sling shot was a stick and two of my sister's hairbands. Lol.

    You should round the edges a lot more. It makes the slingshot more ergonomic.

    Nice work for a first attempt at a Rambone. It's a difficult model to tackle. You mentioned you've made a crossbow too? I know more than a few people here would love to see photos of that as well. We're all fans of anything that can shoot a projectile. We're not 100% slingshots here, so feel free to add another listing with that creation as well. Thanks for posting.

    Maybe a pic of a horrible sheet metal blade? Or something "shinny"? I'm not sayin'... I'm just sayin'.
