It looks good so far.
Make sure you file and sand where it was cut out, before you run it on the router.
If using a round over bit...take two cuts. One half way, then move it up for final cut. Be carful with that machine

If you take your time with that, I think it's going to be a pretty nice shooter. I'm anxious to see how it comes out.

When I do a board cut, I use the same files to smooth out the edges as I use to make the band grooves. Like I said in the band groove thread, I have a .25" diameter coarse rat tail and a .25" fine round file. Do the heavy work with the coarse and then clean things up with the fine. After that varying grits of sandpaper give the final finish.

Way to go I like it. you have come up with a great design. And there is nothing wrong with a beefy slingshot. All of the ones I make are the same. It will take on a more dynamic look once you sand it and put the finishing touches on it. great job.
