    Hello Slingshot Community friends!!!
    Here's a latest work of mine. To say the truth, it took me only 2 hours to fully make this micro natural slingshot. Nevertheless, in spite of its small size, it has shot .177 BB's with authority.
    It was finished with linseed oil and shellac.
    The pictures shows it side by side with my SAK Alox pocket knife, to give a notion of its size.
    It is so small, but sounds to me like a natural's replica. Hence, I've dubbed it the "Micro-Machine".
    Hope you like it!!!
    Cheers ...Q

      Thanks a lot for watching!!
      The intent of it is not accuracy or speed. I just wanted to post the smallest natural slingshot that I've made, banded. Nevertheless, I fired two .177 BB's with it and I can tell you that I wouldn't wanted to be on its flight direction. Cheers ...Q

      THANK YOU so much for watching!!!!
      Saw a twig that was begging to be made a slingshot ;) Didn't missed the chance.
      Actually, it was very odd to sand such a small piece.
      Puts your "normal" work into perspective.
      Best regards ...Q
