    Hiya,
    just finished my first two slingshots and thought you might like to see :)
    The first one is a "Mini Hunter" Made from 6mm aluminium laminated between thin strips of oak
    The second one is made from the moorhammer design. I used multiplex plywood and a small piece of oak for the front, finished with linseed oil.

    As you can see in one of the pictures the oak has started to peel away. I was not so happy on the finish of the mini hunter, it still need some work done to it for a smoother finish.(i've all ready had a few fork hits!)

    well I can see how youd have fork hits on the mini hunter.. with that core I see no need for so much width.

    I like the mini hunt, and I have made one, but the shape of the ferret hunter is much better. In fact it is my favorite. The morhammer looks great too.

    Please don't tell it that. We already parted on bad terms when I boxed it up. It was pretty pissed. Probably happier there anyway. I was always trying to shoot it in my left hand, and it just doesn't swing that way :p
