    hi guys,

    if you have been following my into thread you will know the storey of my dangerous counterfeit slingshot, decided to put it aside and not use it until i get some weaker bands.

    anyway, with the kids in bed and the wife at work, i could think of nothing better to do with my evening than start my own slingshot.

    it started off life from the hrawk template, i took the fork width down to 7.5cm and the total lenght to 13cm. after starting to cut it out, i decided to change a few things, and then again when i was filling, had no plan just kind of happened.

    i know its nothing as nice as what some produce, but it is my first and i think it looks great.

    any suggestions on improvements etc muchly appreciated. i will be heading to asda tomorrow or sat for some fit4life bands for it :D

    images can be found here(should take you to image 1 and i think theres about 15):

    im calling it the "FOX" and as you can prob make out from the images i did have a fox and "FOX" on the slingshot but it came off when i waxed it for some reason :confused:

    cheers

    Nothing wrong with that! Everyone starts somewhere and mine did not look anywhere near that good.

    Very nicely done. I hope my first attempt at a homemade wooden slingshot looks as good as yours.
