DIY Survival PVC Bow


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 2: Cut to specified length

Cut your newly acquired pipe to the length that suits your needs. For example, a grown man`s longbow should be about 5` feet long

Step 3: Saw the ends for the string

this is also simple. Use a saw and cut the notches for the string and make sure they are straight so you don't get spung by the string when you pull back to shoot. I know that by personal experience xD!

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.
