I posted this design in the Shared Designs forum a couple of days ago. I finished it but it still needs some varnish. This slingshot isn't really my style, and the choice of woods wasn't attractive enough for me to go to great pains on the finish. But it does what I designed it to do. It gives the shooter a lot of leverage for pulling strong bands. If you like shooting TBG doubles, this is a good bet. I tried it out and was well pleased.




The handle is laminated with a layer of wild cherry which I cut from a tree branch and a layer of red oak. This project clearly took me a little outside my comfort zone. But I'm learning, haha.



Sorry but it's an overcast day so the pics ain't too good.

Firstly, you did a fine job on it! It's a great looking design. I'll have to check the pdf, thanks for sharing it. If you don't get on
with it, and want to let it go keep me in mind, I can trade you some raw, stock forks for it, or paypal da account.

Looks great so far, Beanflip! If your friend likes hammer grip and heavy bandage, he'll like this one for sure.

(I can't understand how you are going to cut those laminations to shape, now. I cut mine roughly to shape with my new band saw first, then after gluing, I filed them to shape. Hope to see more of the build as it progresses?)

This catty is a nice, nice design as far as I'm concerned. I'll be watching the thread closely. I've got to get out and grab some
more baltic birch and get going on a few of these.

This is the first time I have laminated anything. I trimmed off most of the excess with the band saw. Then some pretty quick shaping down with my Micro plane rasps.

Here is the progress so far. This design is even better than it looks. Having it physically in front of me, I like it even more. Nice one DH. This is my first laminate and first hammer style.
