Another homemade medieval crossbow guide part 1/3

Oookay with the permission of maister Aule from Vidin, I'm posting here his guide for Vth century crossbow. Its the same model as the one in my previous guide - Medieval crossbow guide   but its a bit bigger and with more attention to detail. Its also more than twice the size of the other one so it will be separated in several posts to relieve people with dial up. 

 Starting with the making of the body from a single wood block.









Mind you this is only supposed to give it basic shape. You can also see the bit that will be turned into the nut. 







Now after the body is given some rough shape, its time to mark and carve the trigger and nut positions.










End of part 1.

Cool stuff mate, I've always wanted to know how to make my own crossbow. Would love to put one together using this as a guide!

I'm pretty sure crossbows are the coolest weapon ever made. Medieval guns, with bolts. ^^

i think its cool but i would need more info than just the pictures to make one thanks for sharing
