RambiniHey guys! I made this one a couple months ago, but never got around to posting it. Haven't shot it yet either. Joergs Rambini design constructed from 1/2 inch ply core with red cedar scales. Finished it with tung oil and paste wax. Very comfy to hold. [IMG] Thanks for looking!![ATTACH] [ATTACH] [ATTACH] [ATTACH] [ATTACH]
PSTS (ProShot Target Shooter)After a quiet few months I'm delighted to share with you my latest project! It's my first original design, being cast through ProShot UK and available to purchase very shortly. But here is the first custom, just a tester to see how it would all pan out! The core consists of : 2 sheets of 4 mm aluminum sandwiching a 1.6 mm piece of brass flare tubed and pinned for a stronger lamination. 2 x 1 mm brass liners 6mm brass tips internally and through pinned; 1 mm brass,aluminum and black fibre...
Mesquite from the Southwest!Fellas, I have gone back to basics, i been craving a natty, so i carved me one! Got the fork from the Southwest shoot, been drying since, its my first mesquite fork, and was pretty hard to work with, the wood is really hard and dense grain. but love the way it came out. This one is going to be use as my hunting set up, so it been only sanded to 400, finish with. I put some para-cord gypsy tabs, and its wearing the GZK bands, double 15 mm, 9" active, to shoot lead beans! Finish with BLO and...
Pocket Sniper BlackGreetings Slingshot friends, I present to you my last small, with the measures that fit me to shoot from 4.5mm steel up to 16mm glass or 3/8 hex nuts my favorite ammo.

First go at a stalionI had a lot of hope in this Hawthorne fork and this is what came out of it. Sanded to 800 grit finished in true oil. I'm truly blown away by the design. Thank you @Peter Recuas what a pleasure to build and...
Psychedelic Jelly BeanTake a look at the Jelly Bean Psychedelic. I took Simple Shot's Jelly Bean abd channeled some 70's psychedelia and made this little beauty from Some lucite. I used Gorilla Glue Clear(best stuff ever) to laminate it and sanded down to 3200 grit then used blue polishing compound to make it gleam. I think it looks very 70's and I made it for a person that channels groovieness. I hope they like it. [ATTACH] [ATTACH] [ATTACH]
Pickle Trade[ATTACH] [ATTACH] [ATTACH] [ATTACH] I'm looking for some slingshot bands. 5/8 or 3/4. 10+ inches long straight cut. I don't have a good method for cutting my own bands so I figured I'd offer up this pickle for trade. Maple fork. Skateboard spacer. Pinned with a wood dowel and covered up with rainbow sawdust and superglue in the butt. US only please.
Jerkin McGherkinok before you get all carried away, my cleverness outweighs your pervosity (yes that's a word) by 23%.. McGherkin is a play alluding to the "pickly" shape of this slingshot, and Jerkin [ATTACH] is a medieval sort of shirt that also happens to resemble this slingshot if you turn your head to the side a bit... now that we've cleared away that bit and you stop giggling at "jerkin McGherkin" (because it's a very serious and well-respected name) I can show you my wares......
Slingshot marathonAfter a few weeks without making any frame, my internal termite became anxious and in two days cut and carve the silhouettes of a dozen natural forks. . Most of them are from different species of tropical hardwood trees. Each frame was made without plan or pervious design, only following the impulse, shape of the fork used and influence of the large number of styles seen in this community and the web in general. One of them inspired by the thumper design, by CanOpener. Now I come out of the...
Oak Burl gift.Yesterday I was completely blown away by a gift from @Mr Muz . I did not ask him to make this nor did I trade with him. This was a gift from out of the blue and I can honestly say it is the my favourite looking slingshot gift I have ever received. The oak burl is magnificent, the micarta, aluminium and G10 core is subtle and elegant. The workmanship and finish are completely off the chart. This shooter is a work of art that has had a lot of time and effort put into it and...
