    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...

    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...

    Another way to customize your FlipKung. This one provides a bit more purchase for the hand on the handle section and keeps the forks minimal. Compact and functional. Dyed birch and G10- the handle section was increased to 1/2" thick with this mod

    Here are a few slingshots that have come out of the shop recently. The first is a slingshot for my father in law. Argentine Osage core, maple spacers, zebrawood, and ebony palmswells I recently traded my personal slingshot, the very first Maxim Tactical, for a custom knife. I am sucker for...
  8. Homemade Slingshots
    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...
  9. 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...

  12. Homemade Slingshots
    This slingshot was made from a Whitetail deer antler that on it's own was not of sufficient size or shape to be a slingshot. As such, i have hybridized it with several other woods. The handle section is made from a kingwood laminate with bamboo accent stripes. The forks are made from solid...

    I was fortunate enough to win one of Popshot's beautiful Koa wood pickle fork shooters as a door prize at this years ECST. I have always admired Koa and was elated when no one had chosen this beauty. Well, I am not one to have a slingshot that I don't shoot, so when I got home I banded it up...

    Lightgeoduck commissioned me to craft for him a special BB shooter. His only directives were that it be made from dark colored woods, include antler, have a palm swell and a pinkie hole. Well, after numerous prototypes- all of which I did not care for I finally found the right combination. I...
  20. Homemade Slingshots
    I came across a very nice piece of spalted maple from my neck of the woods. I think it was what woodworkers in my area call "Brown Maple" or Acer Rubrum. Anyway, it is pretty much a natural tie dyed piece of wood due to whatever causes spalting in wood-bugs, fungi, or otherwise. I like it...
