My sons wanted a slingshot each for part of there xmas boxes, they are both hunters, one wanted a natural the other a cut out, I havnt made any slinshots for a while due to tools been pinched and a bad thumb, so i knocked these up using a hand saw a wood file and some sand paper, i think they turned out ok, the fork is ash that has been stained and then rubbed down a few times, and the cut out is red osk stained, here they are.

cheers jeff

Nice. How long did the boardcut take without power tools? I will be trying to do this soon
Also, what exercise bands are they? They're cheaper than TB, right?
But very good job, well done.

The board cut didnt take too long, i got a old hand scroll saw, the bands were only £11 for 5yards, they seem to last a long time, i use a full 5in tappered to 4in and 11in long, they take all game and hit hard,
and thanks to everyone, jeff

Nice work
I wish I had a father like you


I see that many of u guys are using two individuals layers of band. Is that better than just a big one and folded?

And if any of you can tell me a good width for TheraBand Black...I want them to be strong enough to take out game.

thanks

Tudor
I personaly dont like folded bands as they are louder and for me thye dont shot exect.

Nice pair you've made. I'm jealous as neither of my two sons give a care about slingshots.....so much I wish I could share with them.

I have always really had a lot of respect for those who create gifts with their own skills and talents versus buying something from a mega-box store. You've done a good job in more ways than one here and have my respect for it. Also, sorry about someone pinching your tools.......that's pretty lame and shame on them!
