    I build this Slingshot this evening out of a rectangular Copper rod
    (20mm x 4mm).

    The pouch isn't the final one, I will attach one for 10mm steel balls.

    Also a Dremel died during its completion, leaving me with a dull metal saw :D

    Hope you liked it.

    Thank you all,
    it is indeed a very sturdy construction. But I really don't know what the purpose of the copper rod was before I got my hands on it

    Nice Work,
    Like the material, like the cord as a handle, but don’t like the small chain for a lanyard (only my opinion)

    Thank you, the small chain was only the first thing I had here, it has been replaced by a much shorter (and better looking) black string

    Very nice job! Excellent bending, too. It is not easy to bend that precisely, but you made it look great!

    Thank you Will.
    Well im not very experienced in woodworking (first try is in work,) so I chose the bending method for my first Slingshot and also this one. I have to say it turned out better than expected.
