Here is my newest finished slingshot. I ordered some wood samples and found some great wood begging to be made into a slingshot. I created this design myself in Inkscape. Next I cut out my hickory frame and sanded it down with some sandpaper. I cut and 3/4" thick piece of rosewood and split it with a handsaw. Next I sanded half my life away on those too pieces and glued them on to the frame. Shaped with a dremel sanding and #115 bits. Sanded smooth with sandpaper and soaked in linseed oil for 24 hours. I will coat in beeswax at some point

Hope you guys like it! I have a better version of this soaking in linseed now

looks very nice solid, some pointers, if you can use contrasting background to better show the frame also if you can take a photo of the frame in hand so we get better ideas of how big it is................................ how else can we copy it?
