Found an old skateboard in someone’s trash at the street, grabbed it up and got a few good blanks from it.

I managed to squeeze a mid sized Chalice out of the very front / flat section where the trucks attach.
It still has two holes where the mounting screws went through, but still extremely solid…..waste not, want not LOL…. I briefly thought of plugging the holes with a dowel rod section, but then thought NAH, it’ll be alright !

I’ll put band grooves in next, then put CA glue on the edges, sand that back smooth and spray with poly to keep the graphics from coming off any further.

Finally got the finish done on the skateboard deck Chalice……may (?) put some 3/4 butterfly bands on it and start playing around with that shooting style, but light ammo to start ?

Love it, Darrell. Once you start going long draw you will be surprised are how thin you can cut your bands. Start with light bands.

It still has all the proper Sling-N-Shot touches! I’d say that baby is ready to rock!
