Step 1: Materials

You will need a inner tube (any as long as it is still holding together, it's ok if it is punctured)
a frame (giant Y log, two trees ect.)
a bucket or plastic bowl

Step 2: Step 1

Using scissors cut the out the air input valve.then cut the long way down on both sides so you get 2 long strips.

Step 3: Step 2

Tie the end of each strip on either side of the buket

Step 4: Step 3

Now tie the other ends to each side of the frame

Step 5: Your Done!

Now pull back and FIRE! Remember to always stay safe and launch anything other than water balloons at other people.

    Just curious... but which of those images did you actually create?

    on step 1 I created the second one and step 2. The first picture (in the intro) was of my cousins slingshot.

    This is your cousin's?

    The following text has been censored. My cousin emailed me saying that he and his friends built that! He lives so far away so I rarely see him. When i do see him he is dead (figuratively)!

    What was your cousin's name?

    I am not sure if he will want me to say this so I'll pm you after you reply to this comment.

    i think it's important that you mention safety hazards in building this. with so much tension in the tube, the frame is pretty likely to be uprooted and fly backward. even one of the connections of the tube to the frame can pop off and hit you. and, as with any siege, engine, you have to make sure that no one is anywhere NEAR where you're launching.
    i think you should mention these in the actual instructable and not just in the comments, especially about making a very strong, very secure frame. include instructions on how to do it safely, not just saying to get one.
    other than that, very good idea and seriously, it needs a video. it's cruel to post something like this on the internet and not include a video.

    About the safety hazards ill do that, but that is what the disclaimer is for. But seriously I'll talk about the safety hazards. I did say to never aim at any living thing. But about the video i am currently trying to find time to do that.

    If its your 'cousins' catapult, how are you trying to find time to make a video when you rarely see him.
