    Hello All! Empty Hello All!

    Post by JacobL Sun Jul 30, 2017 12:54 pm

    Hello everybody! My name is Jacob and I am an amateur Bladesmith, Woodworker, and just overall a craftsman. I have recently got into a bit of ''bowyering'' and it is VERY fun to do. As a 16 year old boy, why wouldn't I want to see an arrow fly through the air at high speeds and crash through wooden targets? Smile

    I'll be sure to post my latest crossbow-related works right away but as to speed up my post and just cut to the chase I thought I'd show some pictures of what I do!


    • I sadly am missing a ton of pictures of them, but, my Blades:Hello All! <a href=Hello All! Img_8315" />Hello All! <a href=Hello All! Img_8316" />Hello All! <a href=Hello All! Img_8317" />Hello All! <a href=Hello All! Img_8318" />. Those first two are a bit experimental and from three years ago which is why they are poorly done but the last one is my latest work in progress which is near professional level and very impressiveHello All! <a href=Hello All! Img_8319" /> Jam




    • My slingshots are something I've started recently doing and have fell in love with. There are so many ways to make them and they are all beauties in different ways. They are also amazingly fun to shoot:Hello All! <a href=Hello All! Img_8322" />Hello All! <a href=Hello All! Img_8323" />Hello All! <a href=Hello All! Img_8320" />Hello All! <a href=Hello All! Img_8321" />Hello All! <a href=Hello All! Img_8211" />. That last one is a WIP for my friend. My first sale!




    • And, the reason why I'm here, my crossbows and bows!Hello All! <a href=Hello All! Img_8212" />Hello All! <a href=Hello All! Img_8324" />Hello All! <a href=Hello All! Img_8325" />. Sadly, in making these crossbows and bows, most of them are failures. I've had one of them work (the ugly pouched bullet bow there with the marbles), and that was after four months of straight failure. This is why I am here. I would like to gain proper knowledge and help with my crossbow problems and find answers, and do the same for others. For now, I'll post my latest builds and ideas!
