    Today i made some space in my schedule and finished my very first slingshot. It's clearly inspired by Jörg's creations, but i've gone free-hand on it. I glued 3 layers of birch plywood (aka Multiplex) together, cut out the rough shape on my scrollsaw, and then just shaped it with a rasp, my dremel tool, and some sanding paper. <br><br>I actually got a piece of suede leather that was thick enough and thankfully i didn't had to ply it, as originally feared. I will fine-sand it later, stain it blue and coat it with some clear finish. I also have to re-do the bands, because i only had scissors which apparently messed up the bands, it has some small rips already. Well, that's my very first attempt at a slingshot, hope you guys like it. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br><img src="https://dl.dropbox.com/s/or3muipor9oqnf7/sling1-1.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="https://dl.dropbox.com/s/f4s5z9mrnanly9v/sling1-2.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="https://dl.dropbox.com/s/dt3khxqq8y407kv/sling1-3.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="https://dl.dropbox.com/s/wn7droo6miq92df/sling1-4.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="https://dl.dropbox.com/s/or3muipor9oqnf7/sling1-4.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    Very fine. Looks like you could glue on a palm swell to make it even better.

    Nice shape. Good to see and possibly good to use ...
