A final note…

Regarding the two recent projects (the recurve and crossbow), a few final points need to be added. Thereafter, the projects are considered officially closed and I will bore noone else about them.
The recurve: The front (nylon layer) turns out to be a bad idea, at least in its current configuration. The easiest course of action, I feel, is simply to use woven glass on both sides of the bow. Also, it seems that a solid handle, suitably attached to the bow, does wonders in terms of power and hand-friendlyness.
The crossbow: The bolt design has been sorted. I recommend a heavy bolt about 50cm long with three big fins firmly attached to the end. A 1cm round-steel bolt with thick plastic flights is what I’ve settled on.

And that’s that.
