This is not true Medieval but my interpretation of what I`d want.
the tiller is a composite of 3 woods, center burl black walnut sided with curly maple then sided with maple/cherry checker and stripes. The butt is relief carved(first attempt at that!), some brass inlay, the nut is of alum alloy re-enforced at the sear and a black smith made tickler.
The bow and irons are from Alchem, it`s not strung as the Alchem supplied string was a mile toooo big!! The bow is backed with hickory and wrapped with 3-ply hemp cord, I`m hoping to get this thing shooting soon. I`ll post with those results when that gets done.
