    This is a hammerhead/moorhammer like slingshot made from a natural fork. The general shape was already in the branch, I just stripped it and evened out one of the much thicker forks. It's finished with olive oil, which worked surprisingly well. Can't wait to band it up and shoot some rocks! :) Sorry the photos are sideways, I don't know how to fix that.

    Cheers for all the positive feedback! It means a lot coming from you; some of the hammerheads I've seen on here are ridiculously good looking.

    Boys, I just banded this thing up with two layers of 1 inch wide and 8 inch long layers of thera band gold on each fork with a light leather pouch...it's a beast. This can shatter a stone off a a wok from more than ten metres easily. I've never owned a slingshot this powerful or comfortable, so thank you Joerg for such a great design and info on rubber! Also, a massive shout out to tokSicK for the great advice of cutting with tape. Worked perfectly :D
