This is my entry for the survival challenge and the hack it challenge. This is a survival bow that is made out of pvc and nylon string braided. I came up with this idea a while back when I had bought a pvc pipe and had some left over........ and this happened! It consists of SCH 80 PVC pipe, and a nylon string braided. I used rainbow string for added fun! *+*+*+*+*WARNING*+*+*+*+* I am not liable if you end up killing yourself making this project.
Step 1: Get SCH 80 PVC pipe
Step 2: Cut to specified length
Step 3: Saw the ends for the string
Step 4: Make the string
you now need to braid the string. this is a tedious process that will take a while to do, but if done well, will make a string that will last years to come. After that knot the string so it makes a place for the notch to hold onto.
Step 5: String the bow and shoot!
This is the big payoff! string the bow and have fun! You can also take it further and add a ledge if you want to.
