    Ok this piece of titanium is been bugging me I have two pieces exactly the same 8.5mm thick cut the same
    What do I do ?
    Got the winter work done “ except for the shoveling the snow part “ lol
    I think I can maybe end up with three to 4 frames from these two pieces I just don’t know what shape to cut them in
    Yes 1 is a opfs thick :) butt it sits right in the middle so it would waste a whole piece for 1 oPFS But what an OPFS it would be !:)
    Any ideas
    Thought of a @Fidencio León Burgos delta wing without the curve but with a gap
    Lol just trying to get somebody thinking for me

      What’s your spacer material fella? I’m watching and planning. Are spacers just to look purdy or do they as strength as well . Probably a stupid question but we’ve all gotta learn somewhere.
      Looking good by the way [emoji106]

      I think both ! The paper fills in any wave or holes and is a constant glue surface so I would think it works especially better than not when putting wood that’s not perfect onto metal that is not perfect and people that are much more creative than me can Do Mighty fine work !
      This is my first metal to wood slingshots I’ve made so I don’t know what I’m doing LOL as well start with titanium :)
      Dang standing drill won’t allow me to change bits it’s only like a 1920 craftsman you think they’d make something that works right huh
      hand drill :( got to get the job done no matter what the circumstances may provide you

      @Stankard757 made me see my lazy Ways I know I could of done the conus at the same time but I used the excuse of not having white paper not to do any of the work on it and I better finish my project Not resting going for the gap and drill holes in conus ! When it tickles me I want to read the news first have some coffee maybe eat dinner I might have the conus pinned tonight
      Don’t know what I’m trying to do yet with the conus “ I see it I just don’t know if it’s gonna look right when I’m done Lol practical by all means and will last forever by all means will it look right I don’t know ! @Arturo Borquez will be laughing his ass off on this one :) @Mr Muz
      Might just spit his coffee everywhere in the morning After seeing it and @Fidencio León Burgos will start cry laughing at what I did to the beautiful Bacote wood and @Bone will just go fishing @Dgui well jump out of that chair jump in his motorhome come out here just to shoot it life o YA @richnewm will hit 10 shots in the air of a quarter just because he was so excited after he sees this conus
      Life will be a new The other makers will get off their butt and make something just because of what you were going to see hopefully by tomorrow morning lol not the most exciting grain I’ve picked out all three of them strong looking wood but not very much character :(
      But sometimes the finishing grooves and touches will surprise you !

      Hey I'm just here for emotional support.[emoji16]
      Don't blame me because you re powering through. Always interesting to see what comes out of that mind.

      And I know you don't call yourself a "builder" but you've built more and better than most of us.

      Conus is in the winter todo box :) good box !
      All building on hold until I can walk right again !:(
      I ll try to shoot but at this point 5 10 shots got to quit .
      If normal this usually only takes about 4 to 5 days and then goes to my normal pain level butt not offen do I need two Cain’s and right now some invisible fat guy is standing on my left nut :( and two guys kicking my feet out from under me at different times
      So research and reading time lol
      The fat guy stands on my nut when I sit
      And the ten nerve guys go at me when I stand !!! Some days they win . I refuse to take any man-made drug so my pain level has gotten pretty high and I’m pretty used to it “ work hard get the job done next day pay for it “ my life :)

      Ok walking better this morning sleeping most of the day trying to get swelling down so as it doesn’t touch nerves so I started
      Cleaning a lo and behold in one of my boxes is a new tube of Apoxsee white but good to go 15 min apox so it got the best of me sitting there staring at me say glue me glue me glue me !!!!! Then both the side shooter and the Nibler and the glue started in on me I had to glue it
      Butt first I did not like the ho-hum pattern on the side shooter so made another slab for it .before glueing
      DB184914-E901-42C7-9684-F86AA9D8E7E8.jpeg
      I bet u would like a 2” thick bocote board like this one
      D1E5CA34-CBCB-41D7-B7A8-34EBB63C7DDA.jpeg
      New shooting clothes for the side shooter
      4B0119E5-B215-4370-8DF3-38532D2E603F.jpeg
      Ready for the mess

      07A03FC7-AD08-467E-9093-7F554DB025FE.jpeg
      All glued up !
      Now come the separate the men from the boys time finish work and I am a puppy I hate finish work I just want to shoot the sideshooter “ The titaniumfoot “ it feels as good as my hunting sling
      AF8BCB3E-299C-443F-A758-4C2B7FAB11B8.jpeg
      As u can see I like this style . Or it likes me !!! I made the gap larger on this new one pfs is great butt I added insurance of a little bit more of a gap for no hits is priceless .
      Now can I make these look Purdy !
      With the titanium backing for any kind of fork hits these will last forever
      I would hope !!!!
      Really liking the way both of them feel “my” hands

      Ok so all work on titaniumdoot come to a halt . Got to the finish and yes a crack
      Ok it don’t matter because the heart of this is the titanium the bocote was just looks on the outside icing on the cake
      I will shoot the heck out of this thing in tell it either breaks or i shoot it for years and if the woods separate I’m sure since this is titanium I can just knock the pens out and do another . Dang it so close :(
      butt look what I made

      Looks great Clint, crack and all.....as dark as some of the veining grain is on the Bocote, I bet you could mix a little black waste toner with some epoxy and repair that crack, prob never even notice the repair
