    When I read phuphuphnick post about 17th cent stonbow, it remind me that I had forgotten the small  pellet crossbow I wanted to build to joint with my Chinese crossbow collection. Here it is at last! I used bamboo for the prod, cherry wood for the tiller, hemp for the rope, delrin and brass for trigger. It is very fun to come back to wood and to shape an elegant tiller like this. I still have to work with the bow, adding more power and to do a lighter pocket rope to improve speed. Anyway this kind of tool was used tu disabled small bird . I find it very pretty.
    First the reference:
