Starting new project. The tiller is made of oak and is 31" long and 1 1/2" wide at the widest point at lock.
The tiller is base off a crossbow in a painting by Nicola de Siena, depicting the battle of San Ginesio and Fermani in 1377.
Here is a view of the crossbowman on the castle wall
Will use a #150 metal prod, etched side plates and stirrup. Will hand forge tickler for this project as well.
