    Wow! So beautiful slingshots I have not seen. Beautiful! Something like that I also want to try, but I will still have to try very hard for me to at least close to such an outcome. It will if at all possible.<br><br>Fantastic work!

    Wow, thanks for all the support guys. Yea the checkerboarding takes forever to do, but its totally worth it in the end. And I havent used any multiplex yet. I laminate everything myself.

    I want to know where i can find wood that thin? and what equipment is used to get it like that? and how much it costs? and who supplies it that's all <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br>I don't want much do i ha ha<br><br>I'm guessing you use Evo Stick or a similar brand to seal the wood pieces together. or Silicone rubber adhesive or sealant Because it seals both wood and metal and other things but it is water resistant and good with heat.<br><br>This was it saves me from wasting valuable coin <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_scratch.png" alt="scratch" longdesc="33">

    bellforestproducts.com is where i get most of my exotic wood. The 1/16th veneer is a bit harder to come by and when you can find it the selection seems to be a bit lacking. <br><br>As far as the glue that i use goes, i used a two part epoxy for anything involving metal, and for all wood slingshots i either use titebond or urac-185. urac-185 is a bit higher quality, but it tends to be a little bit more time consuming to work with.
