Hey everyone,

A few days ago I made another slingshot frame. She's not the prettiest but she'll work. I made this one similar to other ones i have made, except it has a narrower fork (1.5 cm narrower). This means that the fork gap is 4.5 cm, and the outside fork distance is roughly 10.5 cm. I made my own template and traced it out onto marine plywood, and then but it out with a jigsaw, and finished its shaping with rasps and files. The gave it a light sand and gave it a clear coat. Once that dried i wrapped some camo grip tape around the handle.

Just wanted to see the feedback, positive or negative, its all helpful. Also any tips for working with plywood, as its perpendicular grain stack, makes it hard to work with, without chipping. My profile picture is my older, wider slingshot.

Thanks to everyone in advance. Seb.

Looks great to me! You should also start workin on some natural forks too, really fun to see what unique frame shapes come out of em! Happy shooting!
yeah i have already made a "nice" natural fork, but i do prefer making them out of plywood. But i agree that you can get very nice natural forks and they can be very fun to look for and make.
