Hey there Dogcatcher,

I didn't really have a template. I have several other slingshots that I like and I took parts from each of those and kind of blended it into what we have here... A lot of it is just what the original fork provided me too. The longer thin fork with the knot and and the angle of the handle just worked out that way because that is what the branch was doing.

I have also found out that if my forks are at 4 inches from outside of the tip to outside of the tip they are deadly accurate for my shooting style. The rest is comfort and repeat-ability. But I am shooting this one pretty well right now. If you want I can take some pics of it so you can copy the design.

Yes please do. That design has definitely grown on me.

The second pic is actually pretty close. maybe just expand it a couple of percent. I just held the slingshot up to the computer after I expanded the pic to measure 4 inches from outside of forks, it is perfect. Have fun, play around with it. I have not made a bunch of slingshots but the ones that seem to work the best all use the natural features of the wood.

Thanks brotha, I think I have the perfect piece of wood for this.
