Step 2: Secure It Up

use elastic bands to secure 2 bamboo skewers together - i cut the tips off the skewers because this is not the ammo or 'bolt'. after this step you will have two sticks of two bamboo skewers secured together.

not to be rude or anything, but you call this easy????

yes. But it's not a crossbow. It's a slinshot with a similar shape to a crossbow. In a crossbow, you get power from the flex of the wood, not an elastic band.

sorry to burst your bubble but this is not a crossbow, it is a slingshot that has the same basic shape of a crossbow.
