Hi folks.
I made this slingshot today, and I named it the ``Hornet`` because it reminds me of the stinging beast.
Anyway, This one is a 7 layer laminate of red oak (center) with two layers of cloth resin, two layers of yellowheart, and two layers of zebrawood on the outside. Indestructable.
I have it set up with double latex flatbands....5/8 X 1/2 inch, tapered.
This is my single ergo hunter on steroids

She shoots very fast, and I like it alot.

Stunning Bud! The first impression I got was one of those Christmas Candies you see with the surprise middle in it! Awesome looking frame Bud. A candidate for May's Slingshot of the Month for sure! ****,I nominate it now!

i´m just fascinated with those wooden sandwiches.
I wish to have the good fortune to learn a bit more about that fine wood work , to make my forks laminated... just awesome!!

Thanks for all the kind remarks.
My planer got a workout making this piece. I wanted very thin wood to work with for the layers.
I have more ideas in my head

Amazing! Do you build composite bows as well? Your building technique of using laminates reminds me of the work of a bowyer.

I am glad I have some good pictures of this fork.
She is going to a new home in Mobile Alabama, in the morning .
I would like to keep all my shooters....but I can`t. It makes me happy that other people enjoy them also. Guess I will try and make an even nicer one.
