I finally got around to making another slingshot. This is based off of Joerg's Hammerhead/Moorhammer. <br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=41&u=17228318" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i42.servimg.com/u/f42/17/22/83/18/imag0810.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br>It's made from some very old plywood and black acrylic. The plywood was questionable, so I saturated it in water thin superglue. <br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=42&u=17228318" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i42.servimg.com/u/f42/17/22/83/18/imag0811.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br>The whole thing was sanded to 500 grit because I was feeling lazy, rubbed with superglue to seal everything, and then buffed with various rouges to bring everything to a uniform polish. <br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=43&u=17228318" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i42.servimg.com/u/f42/17/22/83/18/imag0812.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br>It has a very low, wide fork for a very easy draw. <br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=44&u=17228318" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i42.servimg.com/u/f42/17/22/83/18/imag0813.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br>And of course, it fits the hand perfectly. No less from Joerg's amazing handle design.

Onno, are you talking about the first picture? The plywood has an interesting grain pattern, but any voids were filled with ebony dust and superglue. I was going for a spalted wood look.

It shapes easily enough, and you can get it in a variety of colors. It's better as an accent though since it's not very strong by itself. Polycarbonate is much better structurally.

It's either shorter, wider, or both. The wide fork doesn't help to make the handle look any longer either.

Thanks Toksick. <br><br> I think that when I get a chance, I'll head to Woodcraft or a hobby store to get some baltic birch ply, which is the same thing multiplex, to make another. I was also thinking about making a welded steel fork and epoxying some wooden scales to the grip and fork tips for band attachment. This is all down the road of course. My new job takes up almost all of my time

Thanks guys. Though nothing is better than bacon. I'll let that heresy slide. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7">
