Skewer Crossbow





Introduction: Skewer Crossbow

This is my first instructable, and i only had one of one of the supplies so remaking one for the site was a bit hard. anyways just rate and keep negitive feedback to yourself, also to prevent questions, the ammo is anything that fitsin the barrel.

Step 1: Supplies

Bendy Straw (yes, it matters if u like precision)
Skewers(5 or 6)
Duct Tape

Step 2: Base

First cut the tips off EVENLY, then tightly rubber band it so it makes a square shape and rubber band the back too.

Step 3: Cross Piece

put one or two (depends on what u prefer) skewers in the rubber band between the top base and bottom base

Step 4: "Barrel"

Cut where indicated

Step 5: Taping and Cutting

Step 6: Trigger

put on the paper clip and tape where indicated

Step 7: Find Your Setting

    Its called a clothesplin not a paperclip................

    no one said that it cannot be used as a paper clip, in fact when i run out of paper clips, then a clothes peg is the next best thing which are abundant in my laundry room

     i like the hole concept of this instructabule and you preformed it quite well, i will be sure to make this one!

    cool post man. I made one! It works well, awesome range,only problem is the skewer curves alot.....anyway nice post and the instructions were very easy to follow butters8754

     Just put a tiny amount of tape as fins at the back portion of your ammo, it works! I tried it with skewers and it still works!

    nice instructable. i just made this and then accidently shot my self in the hand XD quite a bit more powerful than i imagined it would be (and a bit more blood than i imagined). great work

    great instructable. nice weapon just to have.

    i agree with mynameischeese. its on step 6
