    hi guys,
    i just thought it would be fun showing of this new member of my slingshot family, the Rambone!!!
    i made it myself and my father says it looks very nice.
    even my grandma is proud and she always tells me to make other stuff because its dangerous! haha
    here it is!
    greetings,
    Paul

    Looks great, also the 'scar' on the palmswell could be closed with a nice inlay ore something similar (thinking of coloured epoxy/glue/putty etc)

    i know, i already tried it with epoxy mixed with wood powder(what is it called in english?) but it didnt work! i've also got some putty wood filler but it dried out. i really hate that scar, its there just because the multiplex (plywood) wasn't made well!

    Wood powder = Sawdust :)

    Honestly, all these talented builders less than half my age is depressing ;)

    Good work! :)
     
  5. Sawdust in English :) and rather than epoxy try a good wood glue.... But other than that scar good work, can't blame you for that. Sometimes you just get sub-par materials :(
     
  6. RIGHT?!? All these youngsters making us old guys look bad lol.

    Pretty nice Job you did there

    I dont know why, but i like that scar on your Rambone, if you cant close it, i would try to make the Scar the "Theme" of this Slingshot by adding more scars..

    "Scarbone" for example :D
