How To: Make a simple bow

Make a simple bow

This is a guide that will show you how to make a bow out of everyday items. First, you want to find a curved branch outside that's nice and thick so it won't snap. Also, if it's connected to other branches just saw them off, and then remove any smaller twigs or leaves from the branch. Then take a small knife and whittle down any nubs or small leftover pieces, then if the branch isn't bent to your requirements just bend it or use a vice to bend it to our liking and your bow staff has been created. Now, you want to take whatever string your using such as nylon rope, hemp cord, 50lb fishing line and attach it to your bow. Now, if you want you can add an aiming device by taking a small branch and attaching it with your string to create a cross hair. When your done go out and have some fun with this quick and easy project.
