    Hi,
    I rarely share my self-made work - because I'm not that confident with it. The lack of power tools doesn't make it much fun for me, too. Still I've bought a small board of fancy moor oak and ebony wood and tried my luck. I have documented the building process with some pictures. The last two of them show the finished slingshot.

    Here is an image of the .pdf File if you like the layout.

    There is no need to hide it.
    Your Slingshot is very nice and looks well made.

    The lack of powertools is, obviously because i share your "Problem", something that distinguishes work.
    It makes it far more valueable for me.

    I´m familliar with CAD and CNC-Programming and operating and believe me, it´s not that hard to learn...and once the Programm is done the machine does the work. An ape could do it!

    I´ll take a handfiled/carved/sanded natural over a 3d-Printed, Lasercut, CNC milled Slingshot any Time.

    Your Sling is very nice, i´d love to see more of your work :)

    Hi,

    thanks for the kind words so far.

    If there was no confidence, I wouldn't have posted it. Fishing for compliments isn't my intention and it shouldn't look like that =).

    So am I. There is a huge difference between pushing a button and doing something with bare hands.

    Good job and a nice looking sling! You don’t need to stay in the closet with work like that.

    looks very good. the lines on the cutting on the board look great, that was made by hand? with a coping saw? wow.
