    Halli-Hello :D

    let me introduce myself first:
    I´m Jack, comming from Germany near Frankfurt am Main and i´m 21 years old.

    I like this forum and Joerg´s channel so much that I've started to build my own slingshots half a year ago, thanks to the Tutorials and Threads on this Forum.
    I never thought working with wood can be so much fun, the perfect compensation for my office Work!
    Sadly i have no Workshop and have to work in the garden,
    so I could not build anything all winter long, but my To-Do List is bulging and the Tools are ready :D

    I will upload some pictures of my Work later, i just wanted to stop the silent reading now and say "Hello, my Friends! Let´s have a good Time!"


    Best regards,
    Jack

    Hey Guys, thank you :D

    i found this picture, here you can see the first Slingshot (Moorhammer) and the third (Rambone) i´ve ever made

    I´m very proud of them, because they shoot very good AND i made the Rambone before Joerg has given the
    us the templates :D
    But i have to learn how i finish my Slingshots, Linseed Oil or something.. dunno :eek:

    Sadly i could not find the pictures of my Crossbows... i guess i have to take some more later

    Niiice! Linseed Oil makes for a good finish. You could also use any kind of varnish, or even polish it with regular candle wax. Good Luck! :)

    Anyone said Hijack?

    Hey Guys, thanks very much for the compliments and for the suggestions on the finish, i will test them soon and present the results here on the forum!

    i really want to show you my other finished Slings and the M10 Hexnut Rifle :)
    but currently I only have unfinished things here .. (Double Barrel folding slingshot, a normal python-crossbow that i want to "badass":p, couple of laminated slingshots and a plan for a strong crossbow pistol with magazine , shooting bolts)

    when I find the time I will write a detailed thread and attach a couple of nice photos, today theres only one crappy pic of the Python and the Folding-CB from my Iphone:D:D
