I agree 100%. There is no success without failure. Just keep up the work.

What exactly are you trying to make? I think this forum is a great source for advice. Why don't you upload a sketch and a few explanations? I think the people on this forum have made thousands of slingshots in total. You would get valuable advise.

Greetings from Germany, where people are getting ready for the big snow storm.

Hey p4v Here's an idea!!
I have some unfinished frames you could try your hand at doing the final touches on if you want. Most are just 8ply oak plywood, but I do have an unfinished oak fork I could send you?

Failing is not an option, its a privilege for those who try.

I'm pretty sure everyone's first try was less succesfull then they'd hoped.

I admire p4v for wanting to make his "OWN" slingshot. Keep at it and you will get it p4v. When you make your own slingshots you quickly find out how much skill goes into their construction. What ever you make, share it with the forum and really listen to the suggestions you get. Keep a thick skin and don't take any criticism personally.

You can be an awefull woodworker (like me, I come from a PC background, not an artisan one),
but if you spend enough time and effort into making something that functions,
you will eventually make something of beauty for someone.

I've made a slingshot, not bigger then my thumb, from a crappy old forked branch.
Spend some time fixing the bands and making the 1cm yoke shoot small plastic pellets.
I shot it at a slingshot training, and everyone just loved it.
Its currently fixed to a hat of one of the best shooters in the area
Still functional.

Anyways, my slingshots will never win any beauty contest, but they'll hit a small target 10 meters just as good.
I really should take a picture of my competition slingshot , lol.
