It would be a big help to see the frame you want to wrap. I don't remember now where I got the instructions on wrapping, but pretty sure it was on YouTube.

I couldn't find anything on YouTube. If you can't come up with a tutorial, maybe I'll do one. I have another aluminum frame ready to polish and wrap. It might take a few days, though. My Darling Wife has me pretty well swamped in Honey-Dos at the moment.

Looks good, if you were looking to go with something thicker than twine, consider paracord. should provide a bit more padding if that is what you are looking for.

Nice job

I found the pictures I downloaded on wrapping a slingshot. I don't remember where I found them, but it wasn't YouTube after all. Here is a link to them.

I notice that your slingshot frame, like mine, doesn't have a cross brace where the forks start, so you will need to add an anchor point for the Paracord. Here is how I do it.

I use waxed leather-sewing twine in a constrictor knot with one additional turn and a square knot.

If you would like a more solid grip to fill the palm of your hand, you might condider adding extra material to the handle before doing a wrap...cut shapes of wood, foam, leather, or even cardboard can help add some dimension to the grip...In many cases, I find that wrapping with cut strips of bicycle inner tube can make a great grip, and long lasting...
