Why don't you point the forks the oppsite direction when tying flats on?

Just a suggestion:
Try a fatter piece of wood, where you can cut grooves that the wire frame will slide into.
It would give a much more stable handle.
I dont think the height of your slingshot is an issue, using a pistol grip handle.

You're probably right, but I don't have equipment for advanced woodworking, most of my slingshots are made with handtools.
Nor do I have any training or experiance with woodworking, and amaze myself at what a simple saw and file can do each time, lol.

But when the tips are pointed away from you the bands tie on so much easier and the curved rod make a very smooth surface for the bands to hit. This causes less band brusing and improves band life. Also it helps reduce band slap on your hand. Tex

Nicely done Deimos! I would run a bead of caulk down both sides of the wire where it meets the wood just to smooth it out and also to give it extra strength. Pressing the forks down and forward would lower them which is good and would also give you an extra inch or so of extra draw. Nice work Bud!
