The Prod is 3 "loose laminates" of 3/4" x 1/4" fiberglass chainlink fence tension bar. Lams are 28", 24" and 20". The 6ft bar cost $7 in my area; less in others I know. The lams will eventually be held together with binding of heat-shrink tubing instead of painters tape. The nocks are two thicknesses of 1/4" Phenolic that I had laying about, glued with Locktite Go2 glue. Not the prettiest things in the world, but they should clean up nicely.
The Action is a 'tech-tweaked' Skane pinlock, with 5/16" Delrin rod for the pin. The face of the action where the string sits will be reinforced with a block of Lignum Vitae, one of the hardest woods in the world, which can be sanded super smooth.
The Tiller is 1-1/8" thick 75 year old southern yellow pine heartwood, hard as the proverbial rock. The shape is that of a 17th century harquebus stock.
Here it is on a tillering tree with a bastard string. That's as far back as I can horse it. Will definitely need mechanical assistance getting it back to that third notch so I can slip on the working string when I get it.
