I've been interested in crossbows for a while as they are slightly overlooked in my country, and decided eventually to try and make one from leftover materials.I then progressed onto more authentic Medieval style crossbows.
Here is a preview of my latest crossbow build - still work in progress.
It is intended to be a reproduction of 15th Century German hunting crossbows and will have a bone top, steel bow drawing at about 160lb at 5 inches and roller nut trigger release. The tiller is cherrywood.
I look forward to contributing to the forum as I have applied quite a bit of advice from this board into my last couple of crossbows.
I'll put some more info on my finished bows in the relevant threads later if you'd like to see them.
