    Greetings, all,

    I've been making knives and other workshop projects for the last 15 years or so, lately I've been involved in medieval re-enacting and have started back in the archery game. Crossbows always appealed to my mechanical side, so I'm excited to try building one!

    As an aside there sure seems to be a lot of us Western Canadians here.
