Here is my version of a paper punching (ergonomically correct?) slingshot. Baumstamm suggested I put some finger grooves in when he saw my last one, so I agreed and put some in. The inside fork width is two and a half inches just for target shooting. I just put a couple of coats of furniture wax on it for a finish. Hope you like it.

Smitty, I like that a lot.

Is that bamboo expensive? I'd like to have a go with some of that.

The bamboo dulls cutting blades very quickly, but if you keep a sharp blade handy it works fine. Everything else about it is pretty decent except the sawdust is kinda powdery and irritating.
The cost of the bamboo I am not too familiar with because this is the first time I have ever worked with it. I don't have a supplier yet (if I will get one), I just went to the cooking store and bought a cutting board. I marked out eleven slingshots out of the one $22.00 cutting board I got.
Also thanks guys for taking an interest in it, I appreciate it.

Hi Smitty

Parece que lleva años yendo al gimnasio esa horqueta o que le entra con singular alegría a los esteroides anabólicos jajajaja!

Me gustó, muy buen diseño.

Thanks for the kind words gentlemen. I tried Linatex, T-gold and gum rubber on it and I think I like the gum rubber the best for shooting many, many rounds at a target.
