    Hi again, this time I have a different question, I want a thick plywood of 30 - 50 mm thick, to make some multiplex slingshots. I have noticed in some of Joerg's videos & gallery images, that he uses really thick plywood, about the one I want.<br>The problem? well, I go to many places to buy some and the thickest they have is 15mm way below of what I expect to use, so could I glue thin plywood with poxi-glue and make a solid-resistent-thck plywood, or somehow were to find thick plywood? <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br>

    True, I only find up to 15mm wood at Leroy Merlin shops and last night I saw a video of Joerg using epoxy to join the wood of his pirate looking slingshot...

    At one time I had a piece of real thick multiplex (50mm), but that is long gone. Now my thickest type is 19mm, and I glue up to three layers together. Rock solid if you use epoxy.

    So what mm wood did you used to make the multiplex hammerhead slingshot?
