    [​IMG]Since some of you seemed to be interested in my cardboard creations, i wanted to show you another crossbow i made just 2 weeks ago.

    It is also just made from cardboard(1.2kilos) and glue and powered by 16 office rubber bands.
    It shoots self made wooden arrows with 2 three inch nails attached to the front.

    That thing looks like fun to shoot. It does seem very rigid and solid in the video.

    Nice work.

    Great work! Very consistent and reliable, and as Slagskimmer Mike said above, it does look very solid. Impressive work, thank you for sharing it!

    A rather imposing weapon made from cardboard and office bands. I kinda felt sorry for the poor melons. :p

    Good video demo too!

    Thank you very much.
    very cool to see that you like it, maybe some ideas for improvement anybody, besides stronger rubber? (i am pretty new to this kind of "weapons").

    and yes it is very strong, it took my entire whight when i was standing on it for a test. (but i think it´s the glue thats gives it that toughness).
