Something close to that. Although, if you鈥檙e a newer shooter like Alex is you鈥檇 have no idea.
Lol, I figured it out by accident trying to make a totally different design.

How's that like he said he looked around 馃馃幆 I'm only pointing out they have been around for a while. If you type can hanger in the search it shows you theses being used from 2011.
I did type in can hanger, but the posts about actual "can hanger(s)" seemed to be pretty sparse. Aside from the first few, the results were mostly focused on a post/title containing either the word "can" or "hanger". I didn't see anything similar to my design, but I also didn't relentlessly scour the forum. I included in my post the possibility that someone else may have figured out something similar and if not, that I hoped my idea was helpful.

I'm sorry if anyone mistook my idea and post as trying to steal someone else's work or idea, I can assure you that I came by the idea honestly.

Would you be willing to share a link to that post? If anything it might be a better design and it might give more people an opportunity to see it! If it works better than mine I'd love to make one! The easier the better!

Ok, no promises.. lol
I'm serious Alex! I don't know how long you've been doing this and I could care less all I know is your very skilled at what you do so keep doing what you do and let everything else be. As far as anyone is concerned hardly anything in the slingshot world has been patented so by all means do whatever the hell you want regardless of what anyone says.

Lol, I built my first sling on May 14th, 2022. So, not very long. All I've done before that is shoot a wrist rockets when I was young and look at Really beautiful slings on Pinterest.

That being said, and I don't know how I missed it, but I think I found the post, and here it is! @you'llshootyereyeout


It is a very similar design, and I encourage everyone to check it out! I'm gonna try to make one tonight!

True enough. Were you a woodworker before making slingshots, Alex?

That's nothing like the one you made other than the fact that it holds a can. All I'm saying is to keep creating!

A little bit. I've made a bed frame, kitchen island, coffee table and other furniture.. my wife or i will draw up a design and I'll make some rough measurements and slap something together, I do try to make it look nice. I always have lots of scrap wood just waiting to be turned into something.

I've also had fun making bird houses and a dog fort and cart. I made a "wine box" violin..

I spent 4 years repairing a wide variety of musical instruments I specialized in free reed aerophones, violin/viola/cello, harps and more obscure things my coworkers didn't want to deal with. One of my all time favorite repairs was a late 19th century child's piano. The guts were a unique system of hammers and a glockenspiel, basically everything but the glockenspiel was rotted. So I had the luxury of remaking all of the hammers and their system by hand! It was really fun.

My dad built most of the furniture in my house growing up, but I was too young to do much more than watch. I can't make anything like he can.

All this tells me is you're more than qualified to do whatever you want to do in your life! Just doing what you have mentioned here is more than most will do in a lifetime! I myself am very similar I have restored coffee tables built numerous bird houses built a 12-in Newtonian reflector 馃敪. I fix all the issues that go wrong with my vehicles try to stay away from the doctor and repair my own health. Basically anything that I want to do I can do if I put my mind to it and I'm sure you're the same from the looks of it!

Pretty much, except I'll usually try to get my friend to help with my car. I can see and fix some pretty complicated things when it comes to instruments but I loathe having to fix any part of my vehicle, mostly because I have 0 interest in it.. I would go absolutely nuts over a motorized bicycle though! Because that seems like fun again. Lol

Brilliant stuff! I really like that tin roof one. I asked a girl on a date one time if she had any hobbies and she laughed at me. I knew right then that we probably weren鈥檛 going to go very far 馃槀.

Lol, I got incredibly lucky. I came back to my old job from being homeless for three months and met my wife working there. We're both into crafting and camping. We work together and everything.
