I have a bunch of leftover "Trex" scrap from my nephew's deck project. From time to time I'll crank out a frame from one of the blanks. This frame is a Pocket Shooter that just didn't feel right in my big Mitt so we went ahead and bored a hole in the handle- "A la Perry from A+ Slingshots" style. Went a little big on the hole figuring two fingers in the hole was better then one for gripping. Feels real good! The walls of the hole are a little thin but what the heck if I drop it and it breaks,we'll just go to the scrap heapp and make another. Gotta love making things from someone else's throw aways!!!!!

Another Cracker Jack shooter FB and a real beauty, that Trex makes a fine slingshot.....well at least in your skilled hands it does.

Thanks guys. AKM, I just sand and then dip it in Polyurethane-(Gloss). With this stuff ,being that it's a mix of a bunch of materials, getting a good smooth finish is tough. I keep sanding and then dipping and then hanging in a covered box to dry. I do this about 5 times with this stuff and the finish has usually built up enough for a decent shine. Flatband

Yeah, I also think this stuff is cool. Kinda reminds me a bit of Granite. Hey, there's a future project for a stone mason-A slingshot out of some type of stone-maybe Italian Marble-Cool!! ( Probably been done already?) Flatband

Wow! Didn't know it was this weak Bill. I'll have to try the "Strength Break". This is older stock ( few years ago) so maybe the newer stuff is different? We'll check it out. These aren't for sale-just made this one for me so if anyone gets a "Boo Boo" it will be yours truely! Flatband

It looks great Gary, you could make one look good out of anything.
