    I have been working on this slingshot for a couple of months. I think it is good enough to show off now. I don't have a picture of the original fork but it was about an inch and a half in diameter at the handle and one inch at the forks. I only used a belt sander and sandpaper to shape and finish the slingshot. The slingshot is all glossy because it has a fresh coat of BLO but I'm hoping that it will look like that after I add a poly coat tomorrow. Tell me what you think!

    I think it is BE-UT-TI-FUL, but I think it will take at least 5 coats of poly after you let the BLO dry to get it back to that look (which would DEFINITELY be worthwhile)!

    Nice shaping on the forks and a very clean attachment of the caps. Nicely done.

    I sure did put a lot of work into it. Getting the forks to be symmetrical was the toughest part.

    Very nice and great job! This is definitely one that would be a real head spin to hear you ever getting a fork hit with as well.

    I really like it, and also like the way you've made some clearance inside the fork.

    Very elegant - I made something similar for my Dad to use when fishing - to sling bait out...!

    I'm going to make one for myself - copy your design though - nice
