Crossbow Workshop

This weekend, Count Arturus, Lady Tiernan and Ellice built crossbows under the supervision of Speedbump. IMAG0453Arturus and Ellice built combat archery bows, Tiernan built a target bow. All that is left is to finish mounting the prod and any staining/carving as desired. The work took 8 hours with a single half-hour break for lunch. The general consensus was that the class was really well planned and managed. Everyone got plenty of socializing despite being kept on task by the instructor. The crossbows look great. Here’s a picture of the finished product, when better ones are available we’ll grab a few more photos. Guess we’ll have to get some arrows!
