    The one on the left is a natural birch stick shot. It used to be a normal sling but I did not like how the limbs were slightly crooked, So i sawed off one of the forks and i now have a very accurate and powerful stick shot. I am working on the grip but It is already shaping out comfortably.<br><br>The second is made from 3/4 birch ply glued together in a vice with gorilla wood glue. This one took a little bit of time, I need to purchase better rasps and use a vice... I have to hold all my slingshots while sanding/rasping and It can get tiring. I like how It is coming out, any suggestions? <br><br>I need to learn more about sanding/finishing with oil, This will be my first time.<br><br><img src="http://i288.photobucket.com/albums/ll198/marshmellllow/025.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i288.photobucket.com/albums/ll198/marshmellllow/004-8.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i288.photobucket.com/albums/ll198/marshmellllow/026.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i288.photobucket.com/albums/ll198/marshmellllow/027.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i288.photobucket.com/albums/ll198/marshmellllow/028.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br>

    The one handed fork slingshot seems good as you said. Try winding a rope like Paracord on the handle of the stick, and see if it gives better stable grip.<br><br>Here is a post on <a href="http://theslingshotforum.forumotion.com/t1167-general-sandpaper-finishing-discussions" class="postlink">Sanding & Finishing</a> made by Ryan. Also read the reply post made by Joerg. Nothing better you will find. ))
