Heeeellooo there,
I've been trying to get to a point were I can make my own slingshots
from basic materials. Starting with leather to cut the pouches from,
cutting bands, sawing the slingshots and so.

But, there's one thing I always experience difficulties and that's tying bands to the pouch.
I know some of you do it with cotton stripes and some with thera band stripes...
but please, can someone stand up and post a tutorial, clearly showing this part?

I saw baumtman's video, it was very helpful! (thanks btw)
but the part where he cut the bands at was somewhat unclear...

So there you go,
I appreciate every comment, have a nice day!

that video was good, Flat band assembly. I liked the one showing on the bottom of the video after the band tying was finished, that was on "Conical (tapered) flatband fast cut." Templates are great. A super application of a template.

I personally find it a lot easier to use soft cotton, or even knitting wool. I simply pull the band(s) under tension, using a bull-clip, and tie a constricter knot right next to the pouch.
