These plans layout the very few pieces you need to make the simplest crossbow ever conceived with the most basic toolkit possible; a knife, a saw and a drill.
The plans compliment the YouTube video that demonstrates making the small version and shooting both large and small.

With these plans and the online video, anyone can make a small crossbow for shooting pencils at cardboard castles or a full sized version for shooting at a target in the garden.
