After seeing some videos and blog posts, and with my friend's birthday coming up; I decided to try make a toy crossbow. Surprisingly it didn't take long to construct, maybe an hour or two of work (probably would take others shorter, as long as you are focused). Here is the result:It only pulls about 10 kg (at the most) in draw weight. I learnt about bundle bows in Stephen Coote's book; Ancient Skills.
