Hi Guys!

After seeing "Big Sandy's" nice Gloveshot variant, I really wanted to build one of these myself, but I also decided to build a slingbow as my next project. So, I thought, why not make both in one.

On the picture, you can see the current state of my "Glovebow". The blank shape is still very crude. I will laminate another layer of multiplex to each of the side elements to further stabilize the fork and cover the ugly screws.

For my Glovebow, I didn't use a leather hand brace. Instead, I designed a kind of arch which contains a circular hole for my arrow rest. On "youtube", I found a homemade slingbow, were toothbrushes were used to build a whisker-biscuit-like arrow rest (brilliant idea, Mr. "Alukuchen"!). I made it from 3 layers of 12 mm multiplex. The middle layer contains 3 grooves for the toothbrush-parts.

I will keep you up to date. Thanks for watching!
