I love the HammerHead design and really want the Milbro casted Moorhammer but for me in canada it would cost $95, and i dont have that money to spend on a slingshot. So i made my own!

I really love the feel of this in the hand, the ergonomics are great, nice and low in the hand and i can tell it would be great for strong bands too. I think it could have turned out a little better, but its just fine details, there are a few nicks in it, but ill be making more in the future for shure!<br><br><img src="http://i30.servimg.com/u/f30/17/60/31/15/photo_27.jpg" border="0" alt=""><img src="http://i30.servimg.com/u/f30/17/60/31/15/photo_22.jpg" border="0" alt="">h<img src="http://i30.servimg.com/u/f30/17/60/31/15/photo_20.jpg" border="0" alt="">

Funny, I just assumed you made it slim for your hands. Nicely done. Definitely want to make one for myself.

That is great! How do you guys work a rasp on plywood to do this? I have tried and only get the plywood layers (top and bottom) to break and splinter. I am currently using files and sandpaper. No rasps.<br><br>Thanks

<span class="postbody"><br><br>I always assumed they were one in the same? Muliplex being the Euro name for plywood or visa-versa. I assume you are meaning standard construction plywood vs something like Baltic Birch with more thinner lamination's?</span>

I use construction grade plywood 3/4 inch. I have read about multiple vs plywood and they are the same but different. As I understand it, multiplex is a type of high end plywood. More layers for the same thickness. I believe the 3/4 plywood I use has 5-6 layers but apparently the multiplex has twice as many, plus the wood is apparently better. That might explain the difference. Last night I was working on another ss and did ok with files and sandpaper. Maybe I will post some of my home made ss.
