    hello everyone, this forum seems to be great, I see that it is 99.99% experts here to design everything, I am so impressed with all the talented people here, I've always been interested in crossbows, but I've never done any one, ok, I made ​​one for my youngest kid 10 years ago, a wood stock with a bow of windsurfingseil late 3 pices together, I found it yesterday when I was looking for some other stuff, Im living in the north of Sweden in the wooden area with my wife and children and animals, I've got hold of an oak piece that I should do the frame off, and then I cut off a piece of a leaf spring from a Ford Transit model 1974, and are looking for more material , I'll try to post pictures of my project soon , if I can do it, excuse my spelling,, hope you can read anyway.

    stay safe everybody /stefan
