    Good luck getting the fork thin enough. My slimhammer has a fork thickness of 1/4" (6ish mm i think), yet the width is just about 2". You might be a bit limited by the strength of the wood and glue you're using. I would have gone with three laminations to be safe; alternating vertical-horizontal-vertical. <br><br>What did you use for the handle pins?

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>fork is thick for about 12 mm, and IMO that is strong enough, I did not want to give a third layer because I wanted to have a slingshot enough flat (as far as is possible) I think I've succeeded - it is comfortable, strong, accurate and pretty<br><br>ps. the pins ware temporarily for gluing time<br><br><br><a target="_blank" href="http://theslingshotforum.forumotion.com/viewimage.forum?u=http://img560.imageshack.us/img560/3267/hammer1.jpg"><img src="http://img560.imageshack.us/img560/3267/hammer1.th.jpg" alt=""></a><br><a target="_blank" href="http://theslingshotforum.forumotion.com/viewimage.forum?u=http://img855.imageshack.us/img855/2878/hammer3.jpg"><img src="http://img855.imageshack.us/img855/2878/hammer3.th.jpg" alt=""></a><br><a target="_blank" href="http://theslingshotforum.forumotion.com/viewimage.forum?u=http://img39.imageshack.us/img39/1103/hammer2f.jpg"><img src="http://img39.imageshack.us/img39/1103/hammer2f.th.jpg" alt=""></a><br></span>
