    First a little info on the name, for those who don't know a jackelope is a mythical rabbit creature that has the antlers of a buck deer. The Jackelope is made up of several other people's ideas and mutated together. I call it the Jackelope because like the mythical creature it is made of multiple parts. The most noticeable. Part being the Hare-Splitter style fork tips I thought it appropriate that the name reflect the rabbityness. Other borrowed features are the knuckle-duster like finger holes and pickle fork frame. It's made out of cabinetry plywood and red oak.

    The special background is my dad's '72 El Camino

    That looks great. Lovely shape and a nice finish. I would love something like that.....except that someone has left a stick on the bonnet ;)

    Really cool slingshot. The shape is different but looks like it would sit comfortably in the hand, built in handslap protection too! I like how you have used the oak as a core with the ply on the outside, makes it stand out. Cool name too.

    Good work! :)

    There dangerous everywhere, I'd be willing to bet that jackelope/wolperdingers have been responsible for many fatal attacks. Not to mention the car accidents.

    I no longer care about the slingshot. To quote the immortal words of Baron Bomurst- "I VANT DAT CAR!!!"

    Hmm I'll try one of those too I guess. I like the way this one shoots just fine, maybe I'll start a jackelope style trend!
