Step 2: Finding a Design

You need to find a good design I recommend something simple for your first try.

Step 3: Cutting It Out

Print the design out and glue it on to the wood then start to carefully cut it out with a band saw or jig saw a coping saw will work too but will take a long time.

Step 4: Sanding

You start by rounding the edges with 80 grit then sand it to as high of a grit as you want 100,120,200 and 300 grit

Step 5: Finishing It Up

Finally it's time to give it 3 coats of crystal clear on each side to finish it up and then it's done now you just need bands you can find them just ebay search for theraband gold slingshot bands

Step 6: Just Have a Good Time

Be safe and have fun with this powerful little shooter and do not forget to always wear eye protection.
