    7th Grade stonebows are finished!!

    And they work. We'll be putting them through their paces in the next couple of weeks.



    I bought them each a pewter crossbow pin from Billy and Charlie as a congratulatory present. Now comes the hard part. Writing the research paper on how to build these.
    Thanks to everyone for the help. Especially Geezer who pointed me in a much safer direction in bow design.
    cheers!

    Is that an aluminium smelter in the background?

    It is a little propane forge. I had to build it in a hurry. My farm forge's blower died. Well, the crank broke off! Gotta get me a new one of them...
    The smelter is being built this summer. I'd like to do bronze. Imagine a spanning windlass with bronze pulleys!

    Wish I'd had a teacher like you in 7th grade, Chriso! The students get to keep them, right?

    Gnome,
    Yes they do. I've explained to them and their parents that they will be unstrung when they go home.
    We'll be doing a popinjay shoot at our Mayfaire festival. The younger grades will choose a champion who will compete on their behalf.
