I have learned to make these completely by trial and error. This design was actually made by my client Squirrel Squasher. He drew me a picture of what he wanted and we talked about the dimensions a bit and then I got to work on it. I kept him informed and supplied him with pictures through the entire process and he, being a master craftsmen himself helped me to realize his vision. As I said in the video, he was actually the one who came up with the penny idea that worked (for the most part) flawlessly. It at least allowed me to make slingshots like this, until I made a better jig for doing the slits. So thank you for your idea and your help and I really hope you enjoy your handmade metal slingshot!
Bible verses of the month:
Judging Others: Mathew 7: 1-5
Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.
Ask, and It Will Be Given: Mathew 7: 7-11
Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!
The Golden Rule: Mathew 7: 12-14
So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets. Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.
