    what type of thread is best to use when binding the prod in leather?
    Any tips on how to go about the entire process would be welcome.

    I think the type of thread is mostly aesthetic. The twine isn't going to be bearing any weight as far as I'm concerned. You can use hemp if you like the natural rugged look of it or even silk if you want a more clean and smooth look. These are just suggestions I am in no way a professional crossbow maker.

    Thread?  I'd use silk, personally.

    How?  Well you can a spiral wrap in each direction from center so the curves are matched.  Or you can make a long "tube" sewed down the center to make it fit tight to the prod.
