Polishing is best down like this:<br><br>Use rasp and file to make your slingshot.<br><br>Use sandpaper. Start with 80 grit, end with 1000 or 1200 grit. <br><br>Use car chrome polish. <br><br>Use a silver polishing cloth.<br><br>Voila! Mirror like shine. <br><br>

Some more tricks, use oil after sandinng, preferably linseed oil as it cristalizes inside the wood making it harder and sand with the grain, this is easyer.
