I couple of months ago I created an authorized un-clone of a J5 LBS.
As funky as it was I shot it enough to see that my tube slots were uglier that I had originally planned, and I had a little seam between the micarta and the aluminum.
After fiddling around with it with a knife blade I had an unshootable LBS un-clone.
After a noticeable amount of sanding and practicing my epoxytech I have the Jekyll and Hyde. Flat bands or wrap a tube set. I filled the loop holes with epoxy mixed with red color pencil and carved out a piece of walnut cabinet stock for Jekyll side. I kept most of the Hyde side like it was with Gramps 100 year old gunstock walnut. The micarta is to cover my fork tip holes and slots.
It feels like a fat little chicken bone in my hand. I have been able to practice and refine a couple of approaches that I am going to apply to my upcoming projects. I might be ready to go after something in a multiple laminate.
Thanks for hacking! Moses

Thanks a million everyone. I promise you it looks okay from about 18" away.

The real deal is not wanting to toss a 'metal core' that is such a mother scratcher to cut out. My best homemade came from a MakoPat Core. Now Pocket Predator is slinging perfect metal cores. When will it end??

You'll need your own TV channel soon. Nice change.
Ha!
Episode 1--guy finds ply-sling on eBay.
Episode 2--guy gives it 3 fork hits.
Episode 3--guy grinds into PFS.
Episode 4--guy gives PFS 2 fork hits and 3/8" hole in back of hand.
Episode 5--wife of guy in disbelief.
Episode 6--wife busts guy wet-sanding in the shower.
Episode 7--wife buys guy boxful of slingmakery stuff for Christmas.
Episode 8--guy now in disbelief but is still married.
Episode 9--children of guy embarrassed that dad plays with slingshots.
Episode 10--children of guy don't think twice that dad has enough gunpowder to blow the side of the house off.
Series comes to a hard closing when the NRA and Gorilla Left go to war over the Second Amendment--The Right to Bear Arms.

Thanks for the idea Matt. Episode 4 nearly took me out of the game, but I could reenact the rest and get it on film. MM
