I would suggest you speak to the husband of the acting seneschal of Loch Rudh (Weahterford/Benbrook) who has carved a crossbow out of wood.  His name is Carroll.  Crossbows are tricky because of the load on the wood when cocked, and they will violently disintegrate if not done right.

What you need is someone with a hand plane to plane the inside of each half of the branch.  A machine which is called a planer would not work on the branch since one surface is curved.  I am near Greenville, on the wrong side of Dallas for you.  I will, however, be going to King's Round Table and could bring a hand plane and a couple of clamps and see what I could do for you on the tailgate of my truck.  Others may have a woodshop nearer to you, however.

i am in need of a little help. i know most people don't know me but i'm in the process of building something and i do not have the tools or knowledge. i have a 5 inch branch that i split along a split that was already in it .... and i was wondering if there was anyone out there that could help me or could even take the pieces and make the insides of the log flat so i can sandwich another piece of wood in the middle.
