    So just starting off, i have very few supplies and no money to buy anything fancy (im only 15), i was wondering, what are some of the tools that i would "need" in a sense to make myself a nice piece. I do of course have a garage FULL of tools and stuff but i need help with how exactly do you go about actually making a nice SS. I have pieces of old mesquite tree that was cut about 5 years ago sitting outside as future firewood. Im not sure if it would be useable, i know mesquite is very hard but what about rotting and stuff? <br><br>So far my setup has been a cheepo, 5 buck Daisy slingshot from wal-mart, which i attach theraband <font color="blue">blue</font> that i have been cutting with razor blades. I still have a good sized piece of the <font color="blue">blue</font> and <font color="green">green</font> TB weak stuff and a large, untouched piece of TB <strong>black</strong>.<br><br>But like i said, i would just need to know what are the basic steps and how do i start off making a homemade slingshot??<br><br><br>"Thanks and bye bye" -Joerg <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><u><i><font color="black"><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J%C3%B6rg_Haider" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"></a></font></i></u>
