    Hi! My name is Jonathan, I'm 26 years old, and I rediscovered slingshots this year. I always thought they were really awesome, but I carved my first one out of a natural fork 3 months ago, with chained office bands and kangaroo leather (I tried cow leather, but the bands were too strong and it teared, even after I tried double thickness). Oh well, kangaroo leather works well.<br><br>I'm here because Joerg has really awesome weapon building projects and I'd like to get into it as well. I don't have much tools, but I have friends who do, and I'm sure they'll be interested as well.

    Merci! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br>I can't wait to start building stuff! I got one of my friends interested in it, too. Just had to show him Joerg's videos, and to ask him if he'd be into building some weapons too!

    That would be great if you convince him. Can' t wait to see what you will build. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_bounce.gif" alt="bounce" longdesc="27">

    Hi! I can't wait to see either! Might be crappy at first. In any case, I know I'll have to experiment.
