Step 1: Supplies

Supplies you will need.
1. Y shaped branch
2. Duct tape
3. 2 thick rubber bands
4. 2 small rubber bands
<p>like the one i made but the pouch was lether</p>
&nbsp;It doesn't look like it can throw a rock very far. on account of the length of the rubber bands...
no, it does pretty well, those rubber bands I used are pretty thick.
Yeah i agree
any ideas for ammo?<br />
This is a really neat project. I liked it alot and I will make it look really cool. Thanks for the guide. But I do have a down side it took a long time to cut the stick into about the right size. Does anyone suggest something for next time. Thanks again for the guide.
I just used stick cuters and i cut it down to size in 30 sec.
Well a chainsaw would be faster. hahaha. No, other than that I can't really think of anything else. I just used a hacksaw and it a matter of finding a even branch.
I just leave the forks alone.Just make sure you have ample room for your projectile to pass the forks..
i used a bench grinder to even out the top of the"Y"
the shot cradle is a pouch
I found another 'ible which suggested cutting notches near the top and using Plastic zip ties to attach the elastic bands. I'll post a link if i find it
what if there's moss/algae on it?
I have an idea, to make the slingshot extra durable, you could get a PLANK and cut into shape.
i can never find a stick any other idea for the frame?
where can i find surgical tubing other than online?
Try surgical rehab centers or someone who has gone thru rehab for rotocuff surgery.. I have also found the tubes at garage sales from the door handle or foot stretch kits for excersise.. Try the SA or Goodwill or Church sales.. "good things come to those who enjoy the hunt."

Dude this is tacky some hints for u next time use surgical tubing its far better than rubber bands and on mine i have a tennis racket grip on the handle feels way better u can also buy sling shot pouches but great Y stick man its sweet
buy some slingshot bands instead of using rubber bands they are much more powerful and will shoot farther than a football field
ever been to bangkok?(I hope thats how to spell it) Slingshots are for sale cheap everywhere, if u like slingshots and are heading to Thailand, look around for them.
hehe nice slingshotmines is out of wood too.
OH i get it it's very simple. just attach the two rubber bands together.
This is very confusing you should redo this step. I am making my own design but for the future you should change it.
cool thanks :)
You can use 1/2in copper pipe and a few fittings, like <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.kellishaver.com/slingshot.jpg">this</a>. You could probably use PVC as well, but copper will be stronger. You'll need to solder the fittings together, though. Pieces cut from old bicycle inner tubes make good, sturdy rubber band substitutes, too and aren't as prone to breaking.<br/>
dude...is there enything you could make the Y out of cuz i live in a place were its mostly straight trees =/ get back to me soon plz!!! other than that i would LUV to make this (weres my sister? &gt;:D) ok sweet man<br/>
Well. I'm not really sure what else you could make it out of. You could try half in PVC pipe with a Y connector. That's about all I can think of. You could always go and cut a Y off of a neighbors tree. Lol.
cool im gonna go try this
