    Heres a slingshot frame I made using mostly what came from a place called atlasmaterials.
    Making a slingshot like this can be quite a task when juggling Family work and life's shortcomings. Keep pushing forward and enjoy the good moments! 20200530_093851.jpg
    Really liking the brown micarta so i used that for the core The green Juma was fun to play with However I have to admit this design was not what was first planned. So I just Rolled with it. Throwing in some black micarta and other stuff, to go along with it. Ran out of spacers so I used what remains I could. I had a mosaic pin that's small and put it in the center. Ran to the Hobby shop as it needed certain sized tubes in the handle. This is where I got a zany idea to put some brass tubes inside an aluminum pin. To give the aluminum one strength. I became really pressed for time and with all that was going on placed old pins instead of the new brass pins inside the aluminum ones. Contemplated heavy about replacing them .
    Instead I tried to sand out the imperfection to no avail. This is where I realized for all the worries in the world Im not going to add another one because I wanted to make a custom slingshot. Regardless, Im happy with the outcome as Im confident enough to know that Its still a really cool frame! Just as life has its hiccups in the journey. Its more than ok for a slingshot to have a few as well! Especially when its handmade.

      Sweet little frame man, hands down my favorite one out of all the ones you’ve made. Pretty cool seeing how your frames are getting better and better. Keep up the good work.

      That's a great looking custom slingshot. Materials work together well, and that design looks like it would shoot well.
      I've found that micarta to be close to bullet proof.
      Way to go!
