Never one to throw out a piece of wood, I have piles of scraps that I can't part with. Recently, from the strong urging by my better half, I cleaned the shop. One particular scrap box was full of strips of all sorts of woods that I had collected... too small for slingshots and too pretty to toss. So, I glued them all up into a slab, cut, re-glued and cut and re-glued a few more times for good measure.
There were a tremendous variety of woods composed of bamboo, buginga, rosewood(both Honduran and Bolivian), kingwood, cocobolo, sycamore, maple, purpleheart, walnut(black and new guinea), shedua, antique heart pine, reclaimed american chestnut, dogwood, cherry and probably a few more.
Having not made a Scout slingshot in quite some time, I built it up around a 3mm carbon fiber core and finished it with several hand rubbed coats of Liberon Finishing oil. This was a really fun build and really frustrating too!
