    Guys, I've finally done it. I made a video showing off a build!:D

    I build a marshmallow shooting pistol crossbow from some scraps I had in the shop. The plans (strangely not mine) are from www.woodworkingformeremortals.com. I did modify the plans to use baltic birch plywood for the bow arms, as it's stronger and thinner/ more elegant.

    This thing surpassed my expectations for power, while still being a funny little , non-lethal shooter. I'm going to make a lot of enemies on camping trips and have some major fun.

    I saw this design online and on YT. I like your version, it looks really nice. Your right, the birch turned out nice for the forks.

    Thanks, guys! I love walnut. It looks great, and has a great tone for guitar building. I built my seven string with it and it has such depth.
