    Little Plywood Shooter

    I came home today, hoping that the wood for my main project had been delivered. Unfortunately it hasn't.

    I wanted to build something anyway, so I made this little plywood shooter. I finished it with linseed oil.

    The upper part of the slingshot I carved a little bit, to fit better to my hands.

    Since I don't know, which ammo it will get, I haven't attached any bands yet.

    Looks good. You'll have to report back once you get it banded and shoot it. Is this a little pocket shooter, or something larger?

    Thank you all!

    It is more of a pocket shooter. The whole thing is about 11 centimeters in length and the fork-gap is about 4 centimeters wide.

    I will shoot 7mm steels balls, since I own quite a lot of them and they perform very well. I like speed and range rather than penetration power. And overall, they are quite cheap :)

    Here is a picture of the slingshot with 1 layer of threaband gold on each side.

    Looks Good! Ain't a thing wrong with plywood. It is still my favorite medium.

    Nice and easy, that is more than enough for a slingshot, and for shooting. Keep on building, and more importantly keep on showing us your stuff…;)

    Maybe a side note, the attachment of the TBG to the pouch is better the other way around. The end of the TBG tips should look to the outside, not inside the pouch. I hope that was understandable, I'm too stupid today to explain something…:eek:

    I was just watching again at your pics, but I'm not sure if there is something wrong?
    The soft side of the leather should keep the ball and is smooth side between your fingers…

    Thanks.

    You explained it very comprehensibly :)
    By the time the band breaks and I have to attach new ones, I will remember your hint. Thank you!

    "The end of the TBG tips should look to the outside, not inside the pouch."
    As he said. Ears are always on the outside and the folds of the bands are out or down to the draw.

    Also with light ammo tbb is better. Its lighter draw and faster with light stuff. As a bonus, it looks better too. Something something something DARK SIDE!
