I am going to show you how to make a pocket sized slingshot for shooting small rocks, wads of paper, or airsoft pellets. Depending on what rubber bands you use, use caution when shooting people's eyes. Or dont, because hey, what are they gonna do? You're the one with the slingshot >:D
Step 1: Tools / Supplies
Hedge clippers/ or saw = to cut the stick
Thick rubber band = to shoot
Knife = to cut off bark and to cut the thick rubber band.
Sand paper= optional. To sand the stick
Step 2: Picking the stick
Cut the Y shaped stick, and clip it down to your liking. Just remember that the top has to be wide enough for projectiles to easily fly through.
Step 3: Cutting the bark
Step 4: Securing the rubber band
Cut the big rubber band so that it is just one long piece. Take each end of it and hang it about 2 thirds of an inch over the stick. Then put one rubber band on each side and keep layering it until it is really tight and the strong rubberband doesn't come off.
Make sure the big rubber band is facing the same way and is not twisted, or else when you shoot stuff it wont go straight. (Make it look like the second picture.)
