C_A made a big one for rolling clay balls. I think it should work with biconical form too. It just had to be made with less than two half tubes.

Massi - WTF? It's called a sling. You use it to throw rocks farther and faster than you could otherwise. That's all.

Same pattern, new material.

This sling is made of hemp with a seven strand taperred braid.

If you're using my tutorial at http://itanohu.blogspot.com, it's the same basic concept.

I took five cords, each cord had three strands plaited together. I broke down each of the cords and braided it as you see here.

With all of the untwisting and retwisting of the strands that make up this cord the finished braid took on some unusual twists but they were easily worked out and the sling works great.

Fine work, and a good tutorial. I am not 100% clear on the weaving that secured the ends of the pouch, how does that go?

DM, you`ll probably need to learn by doing it, that`s what I did Wink
"Sew" and weave the strand from the 5-strand braid and between the separate pouch strands, and maybe around the braid itself too.  If it looks more or less like in one of Picåru`s pictures it`s probably allright.

It'll be alright. timann is right. You just have to do it.

Making slings a creative outlet, another form of art. None of the slings I make look like the other and sometimes I have to adlib just to make it work.

You have skills and if you need some additional guidance I'm happy to help, just PM me.

Your sling may have to change as you go along. You have to be able to adlib. For example, when this sling was finished one side was longer than the other and overall it was too short. Rather than tossing it I used some scrap leather to extend the sling and gave the Chamorro sling a great and different look.
