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.

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'.
