    Hi everyone and hi Joerg,

    Warm greetings from Mongolia, the homeland of Chingis Khan.

    Who knows, maybe Chingis Khan conquered half of the world with a slingshot :D

    I was born and raised in Mongolia but for the past 7 years I live and work in United Kingdom ^^

    I am big fan of carpentry, Joerg's work and recently very interested in slingshots!

    Here is my first slingshot made from natural Ash fork and Oak board. All made using only hand tools (it was long but rewarding process).

    Hope to find fellow enthusiasts here and learn something new from true professionals ^^

    With best wishes,

    Crazylagger.

    Welcome to the forum, Crazylagger!

    Very nice slingshot! I'm very impressed that it is your first!

    Some time ago I read many books about Djingis Khan... A very interesting person! At least we know that he conquered half the world with a bow (and a couple of armies :D ), and the step from bow to slingshot is maybe not that big? :D

    Haha, thank you! :D Yes, to make my own slingshot was a childhood dream that never came true. Then 20 years later, I finally did it! Felt so rewarding!

    About Chingis Khan, you never know... Joerg proved that slingshot can hit as hard as Magnum revolver :-O we still have some great homemade bows and archers back home, even after 500 years!

    Welcome to the forum. I've always wanted to make slingshots, but I was scared my dad was going to say no. First I started with popsicle sticks, then duct tape and now proper slingshots!! Your slingshot is awesome BTW

    Welcome.

    If you don't get a thoughtful answer here its probably because you forgot to ask. Great helpful people hang out here.

    Looking forward to seeing more of your work.
