    This is my new slingshot. I call it the queenbee. Banded up with 1 layer theraband gold. I use it to shoot 15mm marbles.

    I sanded it then I covered it with olive olil with a paper towle but it doesnt seem to soak in like it does with you guy's slingshot.

    You mean Linseed oil?!? I am not sure olive oil would be the apropriate one.

    i use olive oil, works fine, if you heat both the slingshot and the oil a bit it'll soak it up better

    Good work! But...

    The left fork (left in the photo) looks a bit thin. Have you rope-tested it?

    I' ve read some people using it but i don' t think it polymerize like linseed oil do when drying.
