MonkeyBoy3217 (author)blackanese2013-04-16

This meant to be a toy, it does not exhibit any real properties of a true bow.

blackanese (author)2013-04-15

Awesome! Maybe light the end on fire. But then it would blow out in the air... nice job anyways!

casey321b (author)GorillazMiko2008-05-29

if you glue some TP (toilet paper) on dipped in gasoline or some kind of flammable it would work

This isn't technically a bow... A bow's power comes from the wood, not the string.

so. its my first one i stinks

Yeah my first one stinks to.And someone rated my second one "some flaws".:(

That Stinks

bylerfamily (author)2009-01-15

Oh, and my bow is the walls enemy.It sticks in consistently.

Andy1312 (author)2008-10-01

If this was a bow the power would come from the wood, not the rubber bands you're using as string. Try it with string instead and bending the skewer. If the skewer is straight grained enough it should bend nicely and be a lot more powerful too.
