I am liking the strength of plywood so will be working with some higher grade stuff in the future.<br><br>I used linseed oil into some red mahogany min-wax stain , then into some homemade bee wax wood polish for some finishing touches. <br><br>This was made for my brother as a early Christmas present <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_santa.png" alt="santa" longdesc="32">

    <br>Failed perception is when you have a gun, I have a slingshot and you think you are the only one that is armed. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7">

    Its fits in my hands great and I am no monster by any means(5'<img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cool.gif" alt="Cool" longdesc="6">. Plus the name is the Sledge Hammer aka a burly tough nasty shooting device <img src="http://r28.imgfast.net/users/2815/14/20/70/smiles/2307125563.gif" border="0" alt="">. Not the Finishing hammer that is dainty,weak and my wife would plink around(of course I am joking lol).<br><br>Yesterday and today we have been testing this monster with single band 3 mill wide 25 centimeters long(Thera Band Gold). My brother likes the pull to the ear shooting style so that is what we banded it for(personally i like longer bands and a little past the ear or a butterfly). It really is a great shooter and it has gone from us thinking maybe a great looker and shelf candy to a daily slinger for us here and a lot of fun.

    I always thought that using stain is too much effort. You persuaded me to try it some day. Good job!
