Re: [SCA-Archery] Re: looking for information help
- I'd like very much to know if anyone has a pattern for the type of super
portable lightweight folding crossbucks we use at Lilies War and King's
Companie of Archers. I've asked around but so far, crickets chirping.
Anyone out of kingdom know what I'm referring to and where I might find
a pattern? It's a wonderful thing.. all one piece, no latches, or
hooks, or slots, or anything... it locks itself just by it's design when
it's unfolded... made entirely out of lightweight 2"x2"s I believe.
I had good luck at our event this weekend with two nice sawhorses (that
I stained so they looked a little nicer than just sawhorses), and two
2"x2"s that I lashed to the ends (had to dig deep for the old Boy Scout
knowledge). Added a bit of stained crap plywood at one end for a 3' x
2' flat surface for resting mugs, bug and sun spray, score clipboards,
loaner gloves and bracers and the like, and then put a few screws in
around the edges and wrapped them with thin strips of duct tape to make
them look a little nicer and padded for people to hang quivers and such
from. At a suggestion from one of our laurels, I'm going to add a
couple of short lengths of 2x2 closer together somewhere in the mix so
that crossbows can be placed butt down between them and be supported by
resting the string on the 2x2s. Might even be worth getting out a
router or a 2" sanding drum and adding some soft crenelations so that
the rests begin to look like 'ocean' props in stage plays.
