Hello there. I made a new natural from unknown wood. It has a nice grain (linseed oil helped), but the wood had some cracks in which I filled with saw dust and superglue. I think it should be no problem, the slingshot should be strong enough. What do you guys think? I was trying to make a Recurve-hunter-like handle part. I think its good, it fits my hand nicely. Linseed oil and clear lacquer finish (I didn't do a very good job at finishing the slingshot with lacquer :/ ) I hope you guys like it:D

Looks like a nice piece! Not a bad idea to seal those cracks. It does not look like they would cause any problem, as long as they did not get worse. Sealing them should keep them from worsening. Good work!

Cheers .... Charles

Nice chunk of wood there. You did a good job shaping it out. What are your plans for banding?

Sean, I don't have any better rubber type and I don't have it a lot, but I was thinking of putting a nice strong set with Super Pouch on:D

You did a great job @DukaThe. The rotten parts in the prongs give the natural a lot off character too. And not to forget the recurved handle. Well done! I guess this could be white oak?

Cheers, Simon
