Hi everyone,

here's my first slingshot, made by me and a friend. 

I found the fork, my friend de-barked and sanded it, then I attached the rubbers and pouch using dental floss and rubber bands. 

Joe, I ended up using a motorcycle innertube for the rubbers. However, when these wear through, I'll probably have to buy some.

I'm not sure if I'll leave it as it is, or fancy it up a bit. I'm considering putting some wood oil on it, maybe making a hand grip out of jute. I do like the simple 'rustic' look, though. 

Sorry for the rubbish photo.

Nobody really knows why twisting the pouch works. The most popular theory is twisting the pouch creates a similar effect as rifling does in a firearm.
