    I have had two black locust forks awaiting their becoming slingshots for quite some time and inspiration had not come. The one on the lower left was found near my home on the north facing slope of a mountain. It is Black Locust, one of the hardest woods that grows in our area. Due to its...
  2. Homemade Slingshots
    My sister in law's family owns a store that stocks building supplies for the 'green' building industry. Recently, she got a product made from sorghum stalks called Kirei. It is little more than sorghum stalks bound together in a non toxic, new age process. It is used for cabinets and accents...
  3. Homemade Slingshots
    A bowhunting friend of mine asked me to make him a slingshot. He is a big fan of Bob Lee bows. For those who know about Bob Lee bows, they have a very distinctive look. Solid black with white accents. Simple yet striking. He asked that I make a slingshot to match his bow and here is what he...

    The slingshots shown below are the 'oops wasn't paying attention' rejects that will not make the final cut for sale. However, they are perfectly functional shooters. The Maxim slingshots have the lanyard holes in the wrong place- too high on the handle. The Axiom slingshots WERE first rate...
  5. Homemade Slingshots
    I have been saving a bit of mammoth tooth for ages, waiting for inspiration to hit me. In that time, I also managed to collect some very nice mammoth tusk. Finally, I found the combo and built the slingshot I had long envisioned. I call it "The Mammoth" for lack of a better term. The core of the...

    A collector recently commissioned a slingshot made from Macassar ebony. I have not worked with this wood before and I learned a lot in doing so, not so much from the effort of working with the wood, but obtaining it. It appears that Macassar is becoming a rare commodity and prices are soaring...

    Several of us who attended the Summer Nationals last week had the opportunity to collect some fine Osage forks. I like forks on the large side, so I can dig into the heart wood to achieve the most color and visual interest. I slightly overcooked my fork while microwave drying it, so it checked...

    Recently a customer purchased a Maxim Tactical and it wound up being too small for him. So, I built him this full bodied big brother the the Maxim, the Ultima. It is made from two 3/8" layers of camo canvas micarta with a 1/16" strip of dyed birch as an accent. The palmswell is made from...

    Recently, an Italian collector and shooter commissioned me to make him a natural to very specific requirements. The fork tips were to be 20mm, the length of the handle to the fork must be 90mm and the gap between the forks had to be 50mm. What's more, he wanted this natural to be absolutely...
  12. General Slingshot Discussion
    When I build slingshots, I do so with the end user in mind. My goal is to create a slingshot that is easy to shoot well, a pleasure to behold, and gets the job done. This year, of the top five place finishers of the 2012 ECST, three of those shooters were shooting FlippinOut Slingshots...
