    I am not sure about the wood in the linked picture, because it is too small…


    If it looks like this, 01.jpg I would be careful,
    please no grooves or deep cuts in the transition section between the handle and the fork.

    This will be better, 02.jpg

    No concerns with this 03.jpg

    Sometimes you can find old cabinet doors that are made out of nice multiplex for free in scrap piles. Not all old cabinet doors are multiplex but it's worth checking them out because some of them are high quality and FREE.

    Yes, I think it will work, as long you are not going to make any experiments on the handle section.
    The Phoenix is hold in Hammer-grip, so all the force from pulling the bands backwards will go in the
    transition section between the handle and the fork.

    Building it this way, ok

    But be careful making it this way

    I am not sure if your wood is strong enough to make the fork and the red marked zone too thin

    I'm glad you won't end up with a broken fork to the jaw! :)

    Best of luck on this project. Don't forget to show off the results.
