Hi folks,

I ordered a slingshot in the mail but it still hasn't showed up, so I decided to make a couple of my own. I used walnut and poplar with dowels on both and a brass sheet on the pfs.

I'm sorry I don't know the names of who may have come up with these designs. I just looked at pictures I liked and drew my ideas on the wood.

Welcome! If you are making such nice frames you may just want to cancel your order, those are beauties! I found my way here several years ago after enjoying wrist rockets as a kid then rediscovering all this a few decades later. Hope you enjoy the forum and keep making great frames.

Thanks for all of your replies, you've all been very encouraging.

I did cancel the slingshot I had ordered. I thought maybe I should try one that was made "right", that's why I ordered it in the first place.

I haven't tried the ott I made yet. I threw a couple of #64 rubber bands on the bone pfs and I've been pretty successful so far (1 out of every 10 shots) hitting my targets with bbs. Also banged it up a bit with fork hits. I'm sure I'll improve with time.

Thanks again for all of your supportive comments!
