    Not finished, but it works.<br>I still must do some "sandpaper-work".<br><br><img src="http://www.image-load.net/users/public/images/zkGFivVtP2.JPG" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://www.image-load.net/users/public/images/v1zF7C9Kji.JPG" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://www.image-load.net/users/public/images/i7dmFp6gIi.JPG" border="0" alt=""><br><br>

    Cool little slingshot, I recommend sanding first with 100 grit than transitioning to 400 grit, that should get it nice and smooth. remember to take your time with each sanding and you should be just fine. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">

    Nice piece. Material looks like plywood rather than the multiplex. I recommend to apply several layers of clearcoat.

    Plywood has a film thickness of 1.5 mm is made of soft wood - pine, spruce ...<br>Multiplex has a film thickness of 1 mm, is made of harder wood - birch, beech ... Is pressed at a higher temperature, higher pressure and is often used better glue.<br>Simply multiplex is much stronger, but expensive.
