    Designed by Henry in Panama from SSF, this is a compact little frame that is nice and pocketable and able to be banded plenty heavy when using any suitable materials. I say that because I've made two previously out of construction grade 5/8" plywood and because it is strictly a finger hook/thumb support style frame, it's unlikely to ever break from band load. Here she is in my maple laminate with a black walnut palmswell. 24 hour BLO soak and rubbed out with a cotton cloth. It's banded with 3/4"×10" straight cut theraband blue, 4 layers per side. Thanks for looking!

    Really nice stuff! Those lighting and dark tones to the wood really add a lot of impact!

    Great work on that piece. I've got a copy of the template for this slingshot saved on my laptop - I had forgotten about it until I saw this post. Thanks for the reminder.

    When I saw the title, I thought I was gonna see a new PFS by Arturo. I'm not disappointed, though- I really dig the Walnut palmswell.
