Introduction: Mini Slingshot

After watching Joerg Sprave's video on a tiny slingshot that he made, I decided to make one myself. I drew up a design on a piece of paper, and cut out a little MDF template to trace the pattern on plywood. The core of the slingshot is made of two layers of 1/4 inch of birch plywood which resulted in 10 layers of wood total. Outside of that, there is an assortment of hardwoods laminated together. The rubber bands attached are Thera-band Gold, which is a very tough and stretchy rubber, with little steel pins preventing them from sliding through the holes. I finished it with a couple coats of water based polyurethane.

The entire build only took a couple hours (not counting the time for the glue to dry).
