    First one up is Joerg's "6 circle" slingshot.

    It's made of oak and was cut out with a coping saw, shaped with a rasp and sanded to 600 grit. It was then stained and sealed with a clear coat.

    Next is another pattern I found online

    I put 3/8" (9.525 mm) steel rounds inside the tube ends as spare ammo and to help prevent the tubes from slipping out.

    I'm getting tired of using other people's designs so I'm making my own very soon.

    Nice slingshots! Well built!
    I aways see a lot of nice slingshots and blueprints, but I aways fell compeled to create something from my mind!
    I strongly encourage you to keep creating and designing by yourself!

    Very nice work! I like the middle one, the brown one, a lot! Do you have the blueprint? And if you do, maybe you could give me a link to were you found it? It looks like a nice little pocketshooter!
    BUT I recommend you to remove those ballbearings! If the rubber tube slips off the slingshot you will have a projectile comin' at your eye at full speed!

    There is a "new thread" button on the upper left hand corner. I was worried that my 6 circle shooter would be too weak but hundreds of shots later (I built it a few months ago but found this forum recently) it's still holding up. I'm still going to use multiplex in my future builds to stay on the safe side after I finish up my oak board.

    Starting on my new design. Now that I'm out of oak, my next project will be in multiplex.
