    So this is my first slingshot build, using the Viper V1 template by @BillyBob (thanks for the template!)
    I have been woodworking for a while now, and make lots of kids toys. Have been meaning to build a slingshot for a while. Then I discovered this forum! Got me inspired to build. Admittedly it's a bit of a hurry job because I just wanted something to shoot. Any critique would be greatly appreciated!
    Anyway.....
    1/2" red oak core with 1/4" cherry panels.

      Thanks everyone! It was a lot of fun to make. Already looking forward to making more, and hopefully design my own eventually.
