    Hi everyone this is my first post.
    I've always thought the Moorhammer was a beautiful looking slingshot and always wanted to try and make one. So I finally gave it a go and here's the result. The woods making up the handle are mahogany and ash. I'm looking forward to taking her out and seeing how she fires.
    Let me know what you guys think.

    That's a really nice piece of work. Obviously this is not your first time doing woodworking. I like it, the dark and light contrasting woods really catch the eye. Well done. And, welcome to the forum.

    Nice job and a real good strong start for a “first effort”!

    Thanks for all the great comments. This isn't the first slingshot I've made, I've been making them for years. But this is the first Moorhammer I've made and is the most complex to shape that I've made

    Ahhh… In my feeble mind, I apparently combined the words “first post” and that Moorhammer into the presumption that was the first slingshot you’d made.
    It did however seem to be a pretty slick job for a first effort.

    A First class build! But, if you have never shot one, you better have a list of your favorite curses on hand for when you ding it.
    Welcome! Good Luck! Happy Shootin'!

    Nice work Dave. You've given me inspiration to knock one of those out over the Christmas Break. I have lot of beautiful veneer given to me by a client and I can make a really nice core with it.

    Looks like we have a “Moorhammer revival” on the forum, no problem with me, the good stuff is always coming back.

    Already mentioned, not your first woodwork, but for your first slingshot a very nice work!
