    A couple quick shots of a piece I'm putting the finishing touches on. Haven't built one in a few years, but I've had the prod and the walnut boards for a long time just waiting for inspiration and free time. The prod is a SB-BB from Slobows. This is the first time I've completely fabricated the bow irons, it was a lot of trial and error but I'm pretty happy with how it came out.

    Haven't been on here in a while, but you did an absolutely fantastic job!! It looks like if they kept the design of crossbows up to date with the matchlock.

             Would you happen to have pictures in progress of the build that you would share ? The tiller looks especially nice wood and design.

    Chaz, I took a few in-progress shots, I'll see if any of them are any good and post them when I get the chance. I tried as much as possible to use materials I already had on hand for this build, the tiller was made from a single 5.5x.75x96" walnut board that was cut into pieces and laminated together along with a scrap of .25" walnut of a slightly different color.

    Obviously the design for the butt end of this tiller changed considerably from what I started with. The stick-butt seemed like a good idea, but wasn't balanced at all, visually or physically.

    Routing out the lock cavities. The tickler, which I got from Alchem for my first build and ended up not using, is still in the original form.

    The quarter-inch center board was cut to shape and glued to one side, and the tickler has been reformed to the geometry I wanted.

    routing out grooves for the brass rails. I wanted to use lighter gauge angle to keep the weight down, but as mentioned earlier, I was keen to buy as little as possible so I stuck with what I had on hand.

    Gnome,
     The last picture nocks it out of the  park for me. Love the rifle style stock has the inset for the tickler and the notch behind the nut for the pully rope the brass plate and the laminations of the wood.
    Just beautiful !
    Thanks

    Closeups of the sights. They both pivot down out of the way for travel. The front is adjustable, obviously, the rear currently has one peep that will be for 20 yards or less. The idea is to drill additional peeps for longer ranges once I get a chance to shoot it at longer ranges to get an idea of where they should be.

    Love the hybrid traditional/modern look, and functionality of the stock and sights.

    One extra comment here. I love the foot sterip. Looks like you could actually put your boot in it. Most I see are way toooooo small and tough to use. Beautiful.

    Now that's using the ol noodle , so to speak. I  think that that's important as for making you more solid when cocking and so on.

    Oops, I can't either! I was trying out a new photo hosting site and decided I didn't like it and it looks like they dropped me. I'll try to put the images back when I get a chance.
