7 Layer $30 Crossbow Plans

With these free plans, anyone can print, trace, and cut out their very own crossbow. The steps are simple. Buy a slab of 1/4" plywood, cut 7 rectangles out of it that fit the dimensions of the crossbow, stack them, trace the design, and cut it out. 3 layers will go in the middle while the remaining 4 will split and sandwich the middle 3 equally.

The rest is cutting out the revolving nut and trigger, finding some 1/2" CPVC pipe, and cutting out the unique middle layer parts.

EDIT: IMPORTANT: Plans somehow got larger in PDF form. If you print this, you will need to shrink the size a bit or else the bow you make will by a giant one. For reference, the actual size of the butt end of the stock is 4".
