I call this one the trophy slingshot because it has that shape, I applied a dark bees wax to it and it came out with this two tone effect a darker colour where the board has been cut and lighter on the front and back which has only been sanded to take off the dark varnish.I am able to hold it in the pistol grip fashion,and can hook the little finger in the hole in the handle making it even stronger and more stable as it cannot pull to the side when stretching the tubes out. Heres a video of some target practice with it

Hi, Hawk

very interesting design indeed and very good shooting, no doubt!
But... I reckon you should have been adressing the "Custom Slinghot' post with this topic.
You are an artist, mate!

These were the first shots fired with this slingshot it was from 30ft I always use caution when testing them out I cant afford any strays.but I have taken it down the river and fired some shots.I am pleased with this it is accurate shoots long distance and is comfortable to hold,it shoots as well as the dankung that I use, I am in two minds in keeping one for myself but I will be making more.

I like the way you mounted the bands. You have a nice remote collection as well

Thankyou for your comments guys very much appreiciated.I got the idea from the Bi-Thor Dankung steel slingshot that I use.Feel free to copy it Dayhiker but I dont know legallly where it stands with Dankung I would not want you to get any repercussions from it.The shape is my design but the way the bands are made up and attatchment style was modified from that slingshot.

Dude, check out the cargo pallets -- you can find nice oak, mahogany, poplar and other stuff a lot of the time.
. . . Just watch out for the nails.

That's a nice shape and I like the change of colour in the wood.
