I got a chance to use my new router today, i had a nice bit of teak, so 1st i cut a thin strip off and put it in a vice and hit it with a 16mm steel ball to make sure it would take a hit,
I made it with the tip of the forks a bit wider than the fork so it would take wider bands,
I stained it with a dark stainer and finished it off with some homemade bees wax what i was given, I'm going to put thera band gold on it when my roll comes,
It can be shot hammer or gangster, it feels really nice in the had, Feel free to copy, jeff

I love it Jeff
I really like the design and the finish mate. Well done Jeff, looks like you will be knocking them out in no time at all.

Another fantastic yet simple slingshot from the skillful hands of Jeff, bravo my friend!


That is an excellent shape and I love the idea of saving wood with the pre-cut gap. It's good to see you putting that router to work, if I were a betting man I'd say that your frame will sell incredibly well at the car boot. I know at least I love all of your work...

Now I really have to try and fix my router, because finishing the edges is so much easier....

Cheers - John

p.s........ please get yourself a router table, for your own good!

Jeff
before I got a router table..I clamped mine in a vice upside down.
It wasn`t ideal, but much safer than between your legs. Your`e a brave man my friend.
Even the router table scares me some with my fingers so close to the spinning cutter head.
Be careful!
P.S. That is a very nice looking slingshot.
