    I am still fascinated by the steampunk theme.

    Made a new anti handslap model, from 18 mm multiplex. Basically from four rings, 12cm inner and 15cm outer diameter. One ring has the forks on top. The handle is installed inside of the rings.

    The rings are intertwined, very solid, and the back is left open for the hand to fit in. The front is closed with a horizontal ring and also paracord in a "shoelace" fashion, tied around bronze nails.

    The whole thing is finished in bronze, silver and black spray paint. I like the look and feel!

    oooo nice. GlobeShot! :D Very fine work, only thing I personally would do differemtly is the paracord, round leather straps or something more steampunk would be better

    Great stuff!! Has the look and feel about it of an old diving helmet, which is awesome!

    I'm glad to hear you're still looking at steampunk themed slingshots. I like this one, very unique. Have you shot it yet?

    It's going to be a good tool for close combat after capturing baba's zeppelin. I like the look but there is still space for a hygrometer or someting like that.

    Really really cool! Best steampunk-slingy yet, I'd say! But I think there are ways to get a more metallic and rustic finish, which might make it look even better. Check out this video:

    Maybe if it works best on a plastic surface a polycoating might work.

    It looks like something from Mad Max beyond Thunderdome. That thing is wicked. Post a video of you shooting, so we can see that nice smile when that steel ball slams the target. :D

    If that were made of steel, it would be the ultimate brass knuckles.

    Pretty much protects the entire hand from damage.

    Believe me, this thing is so sturdy that it won't break if used as a fighting glove. And the bronze nails would be fairly effective too :)

    It also makes a good Zombie puncher, as it protects your fingers from the gnashing teeth of the Undead...
