I while back I built a primitive crossbow inspired by Ron Hood videos and I thought I would share. 1-Tools chosen for the Job. 2-Cutting in the notch to hold the bow. 3-Baton out the bow holding notch. 4-Notch ready to recieve the bow. 5-Cutting in the trigger stop. 6-Notching out the trigger stop. 7-Arrow ramp cut flat. 8-Drilling the hole for the trigger. 9-Bottom of trigger hole ramped so it can pivot. 10-Trigger made and hole is fine tuned to fit and pivot. 11-Tigger fits and pivots when pulled. Well I hit the new limit of pictures for a post. See NW Primates post below for the rest of the pictures 12-Bow is dovetailed onto stock. 13-Tiller bow and mount on the stock by drilling a hole and lashing. 14-Bow secured to stock with cord. 15-Added an arrow holder to the stock and made some bone tipped arrows using leaves for vanes. 16-Completed crossbow with 3 arrows.
