Hello hello, everyone. So in my introduction thread, I mentioned that I had a piece of Yew board, that I had seasoning (forgotten about) in my garden. It looked like it could make quite a nice slingshot in some capable hands; how hard can it be I thought. Now, my first confession, I've never made anything from wood before. I really didn't pay attention in school when it came to woodworking, I found it quite boring. I now very much regret that decision. I also don't own anything that can really be considered tools, so this is more of a "I don't know what the hell I am doing, watch me fail miserably" rather than a build diary. So this morning, feeling rather chipper about the whole thing, I started. I didn't use a template (no printer) but sketching a rough sling shape onto the wood was quite easy, and it looked right, all good so far. Confession the second. I had no camera this morning, so I had to wait until after lunch for pictures, so sorry no images of me drawing on wood. So here is the sum total of my first five hours of sawing. Yeah I know, nothing but a junior hacksaw I have no idea really. So cut cut cut, everything is going slow but okay. I'm having fun and the sun is shining. Until disaster strikes! Confession the third. I bought that hacksaw about a years ago, and left it in the shed, so the surface of the blade was slightly rusty, and probably blunt. Of course I didn't buy any more blades, and it's a sunday, so I can't get anymore until tomorrow. So, things I have learned. I am much worse at woodworking than I could have possibly imagined. I'm not very good at planning ahead. I shouldn't start a project on a Sunday, without first stocking up on spares of the tools I plan to use. So all in all, I wasted 6 hours on something that would have taken ten minutes with a jigsaw and some foresight. Cheers guys! I hope someone gets a chuckle out of my stupidity!
