    Thank you to everyone who made a slingshot for the challenge. What Ive done is set a poll at the top (If its worked!) and I will post pictures and links below for everyone to remind themselves on who built what. :)

    If Ive missed anyone, let me know. Voting lasts until Saturday, highest number of votes wins, simple! :)

    Tough one. There are some nice pieces of work in there, but I do have my favorite. Vote has been cast.

    Ah, thanks! Yeah I didn't think mine should be part of the voting, being impartial and all that :)

    Hey everyone,

    my vote went to Dolo.
    Because I had no time to beat him. :)

    And because his princess to me is
    the most elegant.

    For real: Dunno what more could be done within one hour!

    Respect, Congratulations!

    Be

    ...next time i´ll hopefully compete!

    and succeed.. :)

    For me, it was down to two and for different reasons- Canopener and Dolomite. I found Canopener's design to be a good standard, and his video- showing his drool-factor shop and the process of making the sling, was worth the watch. It takes a lot of skill and practice with the tools to produce a slingshot of that quality in that amount of time.

    I found Dolomite's natural to be of a very high level of artistry and skill. The end cap matching the bark between the forks- which brought out the very blonde color of the fork was well thought. Then to mate it to an all black set-up made this slingshot a class act- I would never have thought such a work could be done in 1 hour.

    In the end, my final vote went to Dolomite. Well done!

    I voted earlier this morning but my vote too went to dolomite. He got my vote for two reasons, 1 he made a great sling and 2 (and this one may not have made me change my mind but it would have made it harder) I forgot canopener's sling cuz there was only a link to the video, not a picture.
    However after rewatching canopener's video (and checking the rules) it is my opinion that canopener also deserves an award as he is the only person who completely followed the rules. He and Mrs were the only 2 entries who posted videos as stated in the rules AND canopener is the only person who included the construction of his bandset in his one hour of time.
    Dolomite should still win but I think following the rules deserves something too right?

    Dolo is right, he clearly stated what he was doing.

    I'll admit I wasnt quite as clear as dolo with my 'on to the bands' statement. But then its also really hard to photograph yourself when you are using two hands to make the bands.

    Dolomite it is! Really really good work for that limited timeframe.

    For my defense with the pre cut bands: It was really hidden in the thread that the bands have to be cut within the hour.
    So for the next time: A list with the rules, like for the Global Trades

    Yup, it wasn't exactly the most organised challenge I guess! Ill be a lot more clear on the rules next year and packs of wild dogs will be sent round to deal with trangressors!

    Its not over yet! Dolomite could lose it from here......maybe......

    Congrats Dolo! :)

    Impressive result and a definitely nice piece. In one hour it's far over my expectations.

    Thank you Scooby for managing this mini-comp! Thumbsup!

    Cheers,
