Here's a slingshot I jokingly call the Black Beauty. It was made from buckthorn dead wood that was full of splits. I was going to throw it out, lol! I stabilized it with super glue and then filled the splits and crevices with epoxy. I wanted a black slingshot, so I sprayed it black. It shoots nicely with 7/16" steel bearings. It's a heavy slingshot and rock solid, so I can shoot it with heavy drawing bands.
Here are my latest forks. Notice I'm now going with slender forks. Small slingshots are pocketable and fun to shoot! When these are dry, I'll cut them way down. Left to right: Buckthorn, Chokecherry, Smooth Sumac and unidentified. The unidentified fork will soon be identified.
