    Hi everyone you can all call me Art. I am a bit of a tinkerer and have always had a fascination for crossbows. I have wanted to build a few from myself for sometime and was very surprised to find this forum.

    My main interest at the moment is Stonebows. I have seen very little in the way of posts about them here. Just hope some of you share my interest in this odd crossbow variant.

    Stonebows, huh?

    Hey there artificer: Just a warning. It's possible to make a stonebow shoot backward... right into your eye. So how do you suppose I know that?
    If you want to build stonebows, I recommend you concentrate on the 'bullet-bow' variety that contain the ball within a tube, or beneath a slur-plate. A word to the wise. DRW

    Yes I have read about that type of accident before. But with proper safety gear and testing many an accident can be avoided. Thanks for the warning
