hey you guy
finally finished this beauty
the core was sent to me by bill
and i finished it by adding the dymalux scales and pinned it with brass pins the the dremel 'came out' and it was time for shaping
this one fits my (as described by nathan of flippinout) 'paws' perfectly

This is a slingshot from a series of five that i've made this Summer. From a very sturdy and dry branch of Quercus suber (cork oak). It has an ergo handle and 3cm wide gold TB. It was finished with a bath of linseed oil and some coats of shellac.
Here are 3 ergo's I made from Bill Hayes designs.. two are ergo arrow shooters. ,and the other is a scalled down version of his cougar.. I made a full size version but it didn't fit my hand very well.. I'm partial to the smaller shooters..
This is my first deep ergo carve and I have to say it was a rewarding build.
My fingers sink into this thing like an old broke-in baseball glove.
This is the big gun of the collection for sure....
Florida Orange Tree + Ergonomics = Ergorange
enjoy and thanks
been coming home late from an odd job ive been doing and instead of going straight inside to a really cold house , i would stay outside for a hour or so while my body temperature came down some. i was shooting a slingshot at first and then decided to get some scrap wood and just make one, well...
i made and posted my Altoid tin shooter, while i made it it felt really nice in the hand, but the tiny ones can be a little hard to hold onto for those of us with older hands. i thunk through the project and came up with a slightly different look, wrong, same look just swole up a bit.
