I'll finish mine tomorrow
but I'm thinking seriously of building a bigger one from wood
how many times do I need to scale it up to shoot an orange 30m ?
I've got a elastic band from an harpoon laying around:D

I think it would be cooler for a larger one to unfold from a toolbox/bag/etc. A big wooden business card isn't too commonplace, you know.

Well, ya know, if I were a cabinet maker, maybe I would like a big, wooden business card. So I take that back. :)

I say build it around one of those nice Craftsman toolboxes. The ones that have the drawers that pull out. Plenty of opportunities...

I've made a simplified construction method that is easier and faster if you want to build one and aren't as concerned about the appearance.

http://www.instructables.com/id/Cardapu ... er-Method/

Also the original Instructable is in the <a href="http://www.instructables.com/contest/epilogchallenge/">Epilog Challenge</a> and the <a href="http://www.instructables.com/contest/rubberband/">Klutz Rubber Band Powered Contest</a> and I would appreciate your votes if you liked the Instrucable.
