    Be careful with that slingshot, that plywood is crappy pine construction grade plywood. Even doubled up, it's not very strong. Caution advised.

    I've always wanted to make a crossbow but I haven't tried it myself yet. I'd be interested in seeing that shoot as well. I'm with Dolomite on the warning on that construction plywood, we've seen some failures on the forum using that kind of ply before - be careful.

    Make sure that the Oak ply you spoke of is furniture grade and not a cheap laminate. Otherwise you could have the same issues as you have with cheap fir/pine plywoods.
