WOW. The curved handle looks like it's easy to hold! Can't wait to see the video if you're making one!
now that is just simply stunning
While it would look really classy in bronze, I can't get over how well the layering in the wood shows off the curves. If I had a choice I'd pick the wood 10 times out of 10!
It´s indeed a pity that it hasn´t got the layers anymore when cast in metal. About the handle... it looks like the body of a wasp, with a stinger on the end. Especially in the second photo. And then it also has wings.
I will agree with the others in specifically admiring how the layers add so much to the appearance of this sling-shot. I also would prefer this wood over it in bronze, if I had a choice in the matter. It is stunningly beautiful as Kepis stated.
THAT'S what i'm talking about! can I copy one for myself? :D
Great job! A metal casting would definitely look amazing!
Amazing, clean elegant. Any chance of a HOW TO PLEASE :) I would love to make this frame!
It requires advanced woodworking skills to make this slingshot. You have to cut out three identical frames and laminate them. This requires very precise cuts. Then, lots of rasp work. I am not sure if I should make a how-to, as only few of my viewers would have the skills and the patience. But I may give the frame to Pete Hogan for casting it in aluminum and bronze.
Neben der Howitzer in Bronze Dein bisher schönster Frame finde ich.Meinst Du die Dicke gleicht die dünnen Arme wirklich aus? Bei Zugbelastung sehe ich auch kein Problem, aber falls sie mal genau auf nen Arm runterfällt?Ist das spezielles Multiplex? Hier bei uns sind die Farben der Schichten immer irgendwie näher zusammen, mehr so wie die die John baut.
...nochwas: Liegt das am Foto, oder daran, daß es Handarbeit ist (:) )? auf dem letzten Bild wrkt der rechte Arm flacher und dünner.So ein teil in Bronze würd ich direkt kaufen (wenn es dann gleichmässig ist) :P
Well the wood looks nice and metal one would look also nice so is there any way of putting em together? Well I think there is, multiple layers of brass and aluminium on top of each other would look absolutely stunning.
The Museum of Modern Art in New York City purchases this sort of thing as exhibits. You should contact them.http://www.moma.org/

wow that looks amazing.
