This is my first home made slingshot. With all your photos I had a good idea of size to make this first one. Thanks!

Great looking flip. I like the shape and grain. Is that Ash?
Hey Jim,

Actually it is 2x4 pine that I glued together to get the thickness for the design curve I had in mind. I used the pine more as a prototype to get an idea of the work involved and if I liked the design I had in mind before using harder woods.

I found I want the forks lower so as to reduce some of the strain on the arm and alter some of the shape to better accommodate a grip akin to what we see in Tex-shooters profile pic.

Thanks everybody for being here and sustaining the good spirit and enthusiasm!

Ray
