    You guys have been rooting me along, giving me advice, and making sure I kept at it. Thanks for that and I hope what I made was worth the effort. It is far from perfect, and I still don't have bands for it, but here you go!
    I'm going to take you through the evolution of the slingshot.
    Here are the beginnings…

    IT LIVES!!! MWHAHAHAHA!

    Nice job! I really like the white patch at the bottom of the handle. The look of the grain is really nice too, especially in the last two photos. The hard work was worth it :)

    You never forget your first ;)

    An unknown wood turned into a fantastic grain!!!
    Things are quite a mess around here, but I'll be cutting the bands and making them in sets as soon as possible, Jen!

    Remember, I'm a small woman standing all of 5'2", this slingshot would probably be small in the hands of all you guys on this board!

    In any case, who said big was bad? ;)

    Bigger is better (says the big man)! That looks great AS! You did a fantastic job on your first slingshot, something to be proud of. The shape turned out really nice, you did a very nice job sanding it, and you brought out some nice features like the white patch and the grain on the end. Very well done. I'd say you're ready to participate on the next Global Trade! Congrats on marking a slingshot building milestone!

    That's sweet!

    The blonde patch kinda reminds me of Joe Perry's hairdo. He's one of the guitar players for Aerosmith.

    Nice job sanding it too.

    I love that white patch! It reminds me of Michael Jackson's complexion. Nicely done and happy shooting!

    Great first effort! Plus---if anybody ever gives you a hard time, you could just whack the offending party on the head with it and that’d surely be the end of the hard time (for you).
