A forum member asked me to make a slingshot for his father-in-law. He said he was a big guy with big hands, so I made this Omega chunky. Nearly 1" cross section and extra full palm swells rounded out this very classy shooter. The fork tips and palm swells are made from figured Chechan while the frame is made from my own in-house "FlippinPlex" laminate. I think he will like it!!

Thank you! It was a fun one to make. The character of the slingshot evolved very dynamically as it was shaped. When I first started in on it, I thought it would be a dud.
Beautiful slingshot!!
What`s the finish of this piece of art?

Best regards

This frame was finished with a satin conversion varnish.
