Default Wooden and wood/sinew crossbows

I have a theory that the use of wooden and especially of wood/sinew crossbows was widespread across all levels of society even as late as the 16th century but I know of only 1 extant crossbow that could confirm this theory, that being the bow in Stockholm as shown in the gothic crossbow thread on this forum
I know of fewer than 6 wooden crossbows in total covering the entire medieval period, including archaeological remains.

Does anyone know of any English language sources or images that could help me research the use of wooden and especially of wood/sinew crossbows in medieval Europe?
