Well were can i start, i have made a slingshot out of a very old toilet seat ha ha, thats why the name ha ha, i havnt a jig saw its broke so i had to use a little hand saw, its palm swell was glued on, but i havnt got a vice or clamp, so i put the glue on then parked my car on it over night ha ha, it worked, i have put the rings on top cos i will be putting the thin tubes on when they come from the very nice people at Dankung, so i have just put a tapered thera band single gold on, it shoot very well, and fits my hand like a glove, i have just stained it not put varnish on cos i like to feel the wood, thanks for looking jeff

Not bad, Jeff, but it looks like you didn't leave a little gap for the tubes to go on quick. Otherwise looks like a comfortable shooter.
With the forks been so low you can put stong bands on, there is not too much strain on the wrist, ive had a double thera band gold on it today and there was no fork hits or hand slaps,
and there is a small delve in the top of the fork that allows the tubes to slip on and off easy, i tried to take a photo of the delve but you just cant see it in the photo,
you can even put the thicker tubes on, jeff
