0002972: Can't select wooden/bone crossbows in uniform screen
Currently there is no way to explicitly equip wooden crossbows. Selection of materials for crossbows only allows sorts of metal and adamantine, not wood.
Wood e.g. for shields/bucklers is selectable.

The only workaround is to manually equip dwarves with individual weapons, here said wooden crossbows.

Wooden crossbows are available and not forbidden.
Military screen, both uniforms or equipment screen will do. (W)eapons, add crossbow, select (M)aterial. No wood.

Technically, it should also permit equipping bone crossbows.
