    This is my newest slingshot. I designed and built it from 18mm multiplex with 12 layers. I call it "The Fortress" because it's forks remind me of the crenellations built on medieval castles. I tried to engrave a boar head (on my family's crest) and a maple leaf on the handle, but as it was my first time using the engraver, it didn't turn out as well as expected. Finished with BLO. 2 strips of TBG are attached at the moment and are all I need for target shooting. This is my third slingshot I've made, and my personal favourite so far.
    Thanks,
    Jacob

    That slit in the middle will probably let you be able to use it as a slingbow as well. NICE!

    Nice work. I had never thought of adding my family coat of arms to a slingshot - but I'm not artistic enough anyway:eek:

    Actually I rather like the way the crest came out. Doing the 2 in different colors but overlaying each other worked well I'd say.

    Nice work!
