      That looks really good! First time I've seen a handle with the multiplex laminations oriented that way.

      Great job! You know I find it very odd how disliked Even top grade Birch Ply is. I love the look of it and genuinely think the material should have a higher status within the slingshot world. You don't see many cored frames made with Ply scales either which is a great shame to.

      Yes Toddy ply is greatly underrated. Imgoingto don't a lo more work with.

      Making the palmswell was simple Dan. I just glued up the right size peices and sanded it all flush.

      Thanks John,

      Double S that thing is fantastic, any squirrel would be proud to be squashed with that. Great idea on the handle, looks great.
