    Hey guys,

    Just finished this one in the morning and manged to take some quick pics of the slingshot.


    The Core is 8mm thick DKC Ergo blank, and the handle material is made by Composite Crafts called Blue C-Tek. Which is basically a 1/4" thick aluminum honey comb with some kind of blue resin infused in the core. From working with the material, the resin seems like standard epoxy ... i could be wrong though. :confused:

    This is the slingshot we will use to fight the rabid space monkeys in zero gravity on our way to the center of the galaxy!

    Seriously though a wonderful looking piece of work.

    CompositeCrafts makes the C-Tek materials, heres the link to their website - http://www.compositecraftinc.com/

    Good place to start is Alpha Knife Supply, they have them in all kinds of colors and thickness.

    Well .. it actually took both Wednesday morning, and Thursday morning .. :D
