Hello everyone. My name is James, and I'm fairly new to slingshots and have no idea really where to start on making them.
I know, "chop a branch and shape it" but it's not as simple as it sounds... How do I know if the branch will be strong enough, or thick enough, ect. I'm also lost when it comes to making pouches... Where does everyone get their materials. I have no clue where to get "top grain leather" or anything like that, let alone in strips so I could make it into a proper pouch shape...The only thing I understand is the bands.
I apologize for being some what long winded, but as soon as I found this hobby, I fell in love with it, but there is so much that confuses me about it and keeps me from enjoying it throughly.

Welcome to SSF. Yup, good info there on the link that LGD put up for you. Take a look in the galley section as well at some of the naturals that
people are making. Gives you a visual idea of what shape and thickness, fork height, etc works well for the most part.
