Hey guys and gals,
This is a slingshot I made for a trade with Pablo. The frame is 6061 T-6 aluminum 1/2" thickness. The handle scale and base accent is stabilized boxelder burl wood. I finished the wood with super glue. about 6 coats and a sanding and buffing at the end. I engraved a pattern on the frame and base with my Engine lathe. This is my "Joes Rib" frame which is a slightly smaller version of my "Ergo Bone" design. This frame is made for Right hand Hold. I made intergrated band clips and used stainless steel screws to attach them. The handle scale screws are stainless steel I turn down the size of the head so it is more compact. The handle scale is removable and is not glued on this allow for wood movement You could also make other scales and change them as you please
Pablo is making me a Spanish style slingshot in trade. I posted this to surprise him. Hey Pablo I am done!
