    I used the same piece of white birch ply... As I get better and gain more knowledge I will buy exotic woods but for now I am using the rest of the wood I bought for practice.<br><br>This is also my first attempt at a pistol grip, fits well in my hand and I'm glad to have tried new things. The rasping is finished, now It is time for sanding/finishing.<br><br>I still need to finish the last Three I made but my new found hobby has no time limits. Thanks for stopping by!<br><br><img src="http://i288.photobucket.com/albums/ll198/marshmellllow/006-3.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i288.photobucket.com/albums/ll198/marshmellllow/007-8.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i288.photobucket.com/albums/ll198/marshmellllow/008-9.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i288.photobucket.com/albums/ll198/marshmellllow/009-5.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    I insist in iron welding, but seeing yours and other's results I begin thinking that also wood is worth a try.<br><br>What thickness did you use for this handiwork?

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>I used 3/4 inch plywood. I cut out identical pieces and glued in a vice with wood glue, held up great. <br><br>By the way, I would love to work with different metals.. I do not have any space or money for it right now but i guarantee you will see It from me in the (distant) future. <br><br></span><table width="90%" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0" border="0" align="center">

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>I can't wait to finish this one. It is a small cutout but the design reminds me of a moorhammer, which will be my next design. I did not use any BP I simply drew out some circles one day and made about 15 blueprints of my own and chose the best one. Thanks for the compliment! <br><br></span><table width="90%" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0" border="0" align="center">

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>Thank you! I agree.. Its's worth every second, I almost meditate while making slingshots I zone out and have nothing on my mind besides the contour and grain of the wood. very relaxing (not for the forearms)</span>
