    Hi all
    Being new to building slings every material I can get my hands on is a slingshot in the making lol .
    I got some ply offcuts so had to give them a try .
    The end result is a bit rough but I’ve given ply a go now so it’s a tick in the materials box and I’m sure I’ll be more confident when I use ply again
    Cheers everyone [​IMG]

    I had a small off cut so being inspired by a post I saw on the forum I made a micro key ring sling .[​IMG]

      Nice! Ply takes BLO, stain and wax very nicely.

      Perfect!! If you don't shoot that tiny one, you could hang it off your car mirror, I have a little natty hanging from mine.

      Amazing slingshots! I love the way the ply looks on the contours. And I adore the comically tiny sling ' v'
