Made another slingshot over the course of the last few days.
It took that long because this may be the most work and material intensive Hammer Howitzer variation I ever came up with.
It may not look like a Hammer Howitzer, but it is...
It actually is a fully encapsulated "safety" slingshot, made from a total of 8 layers of Multiplex (birch plywood). Each plywood layer cosists of 13 layers of wood, which means this slingshot is made from 104 layers of wood. It looks like a mixture of a sculpture and a piece of pottery!
The whole thing is laquered with yacht polyurethane (three layers), which makes it watertight and very shiny. Even though it offers total protection from handhits and band slaps, the motion of the hand is not hindered at all.
This was a lot of work and sawdust galore, but I think it was worth it. One of my favorites.
