I thought I'd make something that would be strong and durable enough for hunting small game. After looking at dozens of metal models I came across this one on Jorg's blog and gave it a try in with some HDPE that I had handy.

Good job

Thanks Matt!

The Dolphin was purchased in 1998 in the open market in Olongapo, Luzon, Republic of the Philippines, from a woodcarver.

Not to be too nosey, but are you using a router on those slingshots? they are so smooth and symetrical..

Thanks! I like the HDPE for a lot handy things. It's strong, tough and abrasions can be buffed out with ease, and it last virtually forever...
