I've built a bunch and have traded a couple to ken75 and Mwirwicki and criverville.  Also my christmas exchange gift was a hammer style atlatl.  Check out slinging.org's atlatl thread under other weapons. 45 pages of stick chuckers there.... My personal favorite is a simple hammer style atlatl or one with a subtle dart self that simply lines up the dart but does not hold it for you.... Ill attach a pic.This one is my favorite and was my Christmas gift. Hope my recipient likes it... If you need specs, I build most of mine to about the same dimensions. if you like it and would like one, maybe we can work out a trade.

...and a fine atlatl it is.  Ifrit makes a nice atlatl and is a pleasure to trade with.  I'm working on some darts, now (amongst other things).  I am going to practice for the upcoming primitive shoots.  Someday, I'll be respectable at this atlatl thing.

A great place to find atlatl specs is http://www.thudscave.com/npaa/ .  you can find all kinds of styles and the directions are straight forward and complete. Each one has drawings to accompany the plans/directions.   If you are good with your hands this site will be a treat.
