    I've made this design and blueprint some time ago, and started building until my "eye burn" accident......well, I needed to finish it and so here it is. Frame in cabreúva wood, palmswell in Black sucupira wood. Lineseed oil finish.
    Very small, compact and still ergonomic. The pinky finger does not hold the frame!
    I really like this one!:D

    That looks great BV! I'm so used to working with lighter colored wood, it's nice to see the darker varieties out there. I like this style. I'm getting close to finishing one myself that uses the finger/thumb grip. I like how it feels in the hand. And the palmswell just adds not only to the looks but I'm sure to the comfort as well. Great slingshot! I'll be adding that design to my 'to do' list.

    Ya' See! I figured you for a Chubby Chaser!;)
    Nicely done my Friend. That palm filling swell should lock it into your hand and really boost that consistent hold needed for good aiming.

    Thanks! It is confortable and effective!

    Thanks! It is half mini, but can carry strong bands with less risk of breaking!
    It was a little time before you join the forum. wrong choice of power tools, exotic wood. even with eye protection I got an ulcer in the cornea. I'm fine, perfect vision! Thanks for asking!

    Thanks!
