    I have finally made my first slingshot and it is completely made by hand.
    I think it worked out well, I can take criticism so please give me tips for next time :)

    Welcome to the forum Drogomil.

    That looks like a very sturdy fork, with nice shaping. Be sure to test it with a rope tied where the bands go and the handle held fast in a vice. It looks very strong in the picture, should do fine.

    What kind of wood is it?
    I like how pale the color is.

    Seems strong, effective. OLD SCHOOL ROCKS!!!!

    Sooner you may try some sandpaper working...and file shaping...and than it will be too late, the disease will become uncurable!

    Band it and start slinging it's ready to go. Looks like a comfy handle.

    Looks good Drogomil, great first effort! Time to band it up and start shooting. If you do want to take it further, you could definitely do so with some sandpaper and some kind of simple finish. I don't know what you have available in terms of materials for finishing, but you don't have to spend a lot of money to have a good finish.
