    I am working on five complete different slingshots at the moment, and this one finished the second. The first one needs to be refinished because of its intensive use…:)

    Material:

    5mm Aluminum
    6mm HPL (high pressure laminate)
    5mm Aluminum
    2 Brass threaded sleeve
    2 Stainless steel screws
    The clips are made from 6mm Aluminum because of the construction.

    It isn’t a mirror finish. I carry a nearly mirror finished slingshot in my backpack and my pocket for about two weeks to see what happened. I'm a little shocked, how those hundred little tiny scratches can change the look of it :eek:

    Sorry guys, that's why I have not taken the trouble on this one.


    Big Credits go to Dan Ford who has inspired me more than once with his “Scallops”

      Thank you all for you nice Comments, that blew me away...

      @Be Mahoney

      Are you serious?...

      You know, I am not…;)

      @flicks

      Wow - you are comlpletely crazy …(mitbringen)

      Yes I am, like you but in a positive way…and you will see this one on Saturday, when we meet.

      @reset

      What can i say. Love it. Great workmanship.

      Thank you very much reset.

      @CanOpener

      LW I saw your slingshot in the gallery header and instantly recognized it was made by you. [​IMG]Your integrated clips look so fine! The overall design is great. The lanyard is interesting. The vee groove in the throat adds a ton of style to an already great design. Well done!!!!! Your work inspires me to try harder. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]five smiles is my highest rating.
      Regards Randy


      Thank you very much Randy (may I say Randy…) it pleases me very much to hear that I can inspire people like you with my work. As you have written in another thread, this is not a competition and I can see that you simply rejoice about other people's work. I appreciate this very much.
      Same with me, only reason to showing my slingshots is to show what is possible, what can be done?!
      “but it need not be done” for example, I have some simple shooters, made in about two or three hours, which are same accurate, almost indestructible, and I like to carry them around.
      Don’t get me wrong, I don’t make slingshots for the Gallery, I shoot all my slingshot, some more some less.
      What I want to say, it makes me sad to hear or read, that others don’t like to post or show, because they do not want to be compared.

      “thejourney is the goal” in every build I learn something new, something what can be done different the next time or can be done better.
      So let us see this as to learn from each other and to take benefit from “every” post


      @Clever Moniker

      This is so crazy man. The stuff your mind cooks up L_W!!!? An absolutely amazing slingshot, and very well made too. Love everything about this. I don't even know what else to say!!!

      Thank you for the compliment! But you don’t want to know what is in my mind…:)


      @Metropolicity

      *blink* is it true? A mirage? Such beauty in a simple sling.
      Nothing more to add here, such an intense example of a true craftsman!


      Thank you for this compliment from a true craftsman!

      @Darren

      That is jaw-droppingly beautiful. It can't get any better than that!

      …maybe it can… we will see… Thank you very much Darren!


      @Arturo Borguez

      Truly amazing craftsman and beautiful design ... one of the finest among the finest I ever seen !
      cheers


      Thank you very much Arturo, I am sure you could teach this one how to shoot. but I'm afraid it's not the Slingshot it is the shooter who would have to be taught...

      @Harrison Harrison

      wow zowee ding dong haha

      I suspect you like it...Thank you!

      @August West

      Dude that don't even look real. It is so clean it looks like CG.

      That is just WOW. The satin finish is nice, in my opinion better than a mirror finish, anything that has a mirror finish says "stay away from me, I'm a shelf piece!"

      Good job, I'm stunned.

      LW isn't on a new level. LW just is on a level of his own. He has been doing this for a long time. Just well above most of us.
