    the bow is made of yew and the tiller in plum tree (just because I had to cut a branch a few year ago and it staid on the workshop till this time).

    Made with drawknife for the biggest part of the job.

    I think the east asia primitive crossbow is much simple ( vietnam crossbow).
    You had better add some bias spring to prevent failure activate the trigger.

    Nice work! I've been thinking of a similar build for some time. One of these days...

    Thanks... that's certainly the easiest to make... not sure why they more often use nut as it's really harder. accurancy certainly.
    Good luck in your project too.

    Why roller locks instead of notch-bows?  Ask me again when you've worn out your third bowstring.  But to answer seriously, roller locks are stronger, quieter, allow a better trigger release, and have substantially less wear on bowstrings.  Notch-locks have three major advantages: they span/lock faster and are cheaper/easier to make, with less materials cost.  You take your choice and pay the price.  Geezer.

    I don't really know what you call roller lock and notch bow... I'm french speaking and I don't understand all the crossbow vocabulary.
    I make it closer to the original one, not exactely but I don't think I have changed the logical of the original one even if it's not in good state of preservation at all.
