    This is the second of my slingshot olive series, in this I lowered the handle to put this black skin and i put on it two long bands per side to shoot in butterfly stile. as you see I'm doing lately olive slingshot and it is because I have discovered that I love this wood, and is ideal for slingshot. if I'm honest when I made this slingshot was thinking of Saderath slingshots and this is because I really like his way of doing slingshot. I hope you like it guys :)

    and I forgot it, I made a hole that goes from the handle to the bottom of the slingshot, to pass the cord through the hole and so the finish is better

    Good work, and your leather work is also very good, and there are always the little details that stand out and interest me, like the lanyard that comes out from the lower part of the handle.

    very nice !!

    Very good lookin' slingshot and very nice work. I made one out of olive wood sometime ago( i already gave it), that wood is very nice, easy to work with and strong enough for slingshots. The leather looks great on it and the way you made the lanyard is a great idea.
