    Inspired obviously to the great Shrike from Bill Hayes, while building it I was admiring the refined ergonomic and the balance in everything.

    Yet another ergo slingshot made from scrap plywood.
    Hours of fun finished nightly with this bloody finish, with a bloody scarlet red and superglue cyanoacrilate.
    The finish left intentionally this way.
    A solid shooter excellent with fast bands like these

      Lightly sand it with 220 grit paper to bring down the high spots in the glue, then progress to 400 grit. You can still get a fantastic finish on that one! Great work!
