    Not mad at all, Slingpit stated that its a dart motif and it accurately portrays a dartboard bullseye, that's all. Seemed like you were criticizing a bit too heavily for my taste.

    It should be symbolic for a bullseye. If my friend would have a dartboard ,i build him a dartbord. Or the easy way,buy him one.;)
    P. S Thanks dolomite

    Bull's eye

    This is a standard British dart board. The bull's eye is two rings in the middle. Any more and you're writing the Lords Prayer on a grain of rice.

    Now that I've had a closer look the motif is even more spectacular!

    Sorry it's me again but I just love it. If the new recipient can restrain himself from polishing too much the copper should go green. Last post!

    I wasnt criticizing at all. Maybe my second post looked that way, but thats all the language barrier. just look at my first post.

    "
    Also i would add one more "layer" into the copper bcause it doesnt look like a bullseye to me. "

    .... I would...... to me ......

    at least i learned that bulls eye isnt the whole board yo.

    I thought the same, so i decided to make it this way.
    The copper inlay isn´t in the same height, as the brass. It´s a little bit deeper.
    The copper is sealed with Epoxy.
    I hope, the recipient can polish 20 years every day.:rolleyes:

    Very nice, clear and solid slingshot. Nice detail with the brass and copper inlay.

    I wish I had the same patience and perseverance to work with aluminum that thickness as you have. :eek:

    Great job!

    Thank you LW.
    While building this slingshot, there were always your words in my mind,
    No grip support. No grip support.;)
