My woods-loving, tree climbing adventuresome teen has been making weapons, swords, daggers, letter openers, cheese knives, and now these lovely organic slingshots-
these are perfect for birthdays for all kids,(and dads) can be used with crunched up junk mail for indoor battles for great rainy day fun!

She (along with her papa) harvest deadfallen rhodedendron which has lovely branches perfect for the solid y shape and lasts forever, and she carves and sands til these are absolutely perfectly smooth. She never damages a tree, and she only uses branches that have been dried on the forest floor so cracking is not an issue.

The grooves for the rubber bands are hand carved too, no power tool touches these ever. All upcycled leather pockets are attached. If you need a vegan one, she has access to pleather, faux leather, and upcycled denim and canvas. They are rubbed with beeswax or olive oil as a finish.

These slingshots take hours of concentration and meditation so they are not the regular sort of basement jigsaw sort of slingshot. These are crafted in Appalachia often out by the river at a little spot we named Big Rock, on the porch or some other quiet place away in the garden.

Anyway- you get the idea- they are all a little different with details, wood grain, shapes and different colored leather pouches and rubber straps. The only common thread is that they are solid, smooth, a lot of fun, and are well loved and rubbed by everyone in the community while they are created- we all have to feel how smooth they are- every few minutes :-)


thanks for looking! and thanks for supporting young blossoming artists :-)
