    The eye holes are for your thumb and forefinger. I prefer hammergrip but this may prove to be an exception.<br><br>Ill get started on it as soon as i get some dark colored hardwood<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=3&u=17753487" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i35.servimg.com/u/f35/17/75/34/87/wolf_s12.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a>

    The Wolf is a very interesting design. I really look forward to seeing how it works in the "flesh" so to speak. On that darker slingshot, is that a piece of copper in the center?<br><br>I have some fond memories of Gig Harbor. I spent a couple summers up there in junior high back in the 80s. My best friend's dad lived up there at the time and we'd go stay there for a few weeks during the summer to get out of the Arizona heat. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28">

    Yes it is copper. unfortunately it oxidized and is longer as pretty. I might put in layers of aluminum into the wolf so it has a black and silver alternating pattern. And what a coincidence that you have been to gig harbor <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">

    Well done, these are very nice slingshots!<br>You make nice designs, pal.<br>I assume you used noble wood, didn't you?<br>What kind of noble wood do you used?<br>Looking forward to see your wolf design.

    I cut it out of a piece of aluminum and it does hurt your hand a little bit but once i round the edges im sure it will be fine
