the Cowboy slingshot

This is my version of what I feel a good laminate slingshot should be more like... about an inch thick, with a robust devil-may-care look. Material that if scratched or knocked a bit off... no real big deal.

It's made from four 1/4" sheets of cabinet grade multiplex epoxied together... for a total cross grained layer count of 20, which really makes this a STRONG slingshot. Finished in two different stains with a satin coating... it gives it a real western look and feel.

Cowboys had to be fast and accurate so I changed up my proof test for this shooter to reflect that... the test was to see how many hits I could do in a minute from a moderate distance instead of my usual 66'... and it turned out that it's 10 hits in 1 minute on a coke can hanging 33' away. Fast and accurate... it's the Cowboy way!

That's a real nice color and finish. You've definitely got your own style going there, Bill. Does have a cowboy look, too.
Excellent work.

Nice shooting, that really is an interesting design.
If you do not have thick plywood, epoxy 4 together! Point made.

Beautiful custom slingshot and great accuracy.

How would you hold non-magnetic marbles for rapid reloading?
If those are for sale, I wouldn't mind having one for my collection.
