    My name is Mark, and have been into primitive archery for 10 years or more.  I make primitive longbows, and want to make a medieval crossbow.

    Very nice, I plan on starting out with steel prod, but want to make a wood prod. 

    Thanks for replying

    Hi Mark, welcome. What part of MD do you call home? I'm a MD resident just for a year and a half in the DC area, I always try to learn as much as I can about the states where I live.
