Introduction: LOTR Style Bow
Hi, this instructable will show you how to make a bow and arrow, lord of the rings style.
It is very cheap to make and is very lightweight.
This instructable was requested by jediwhiz3 a while back and I apologise for getting it up so late.
Step 1: Materials
You will need
1) large piece of pine
2) Masking tape
3) wood stain
4) 2 srews
5) Sand paper
and some string
1) coping saw
2)drill press (hand drills work to)
4) sharp knife
Step 2: Cutting the Wood
I wanted to get that middle-ages look so I cut the wood in half with my coping saw to get a rough cut look
be careful cutting the wood (I cut myself at least once making this)
Then stain your wood (I used ight oak)
Step 3: Adding the Curve
My camra ran out of battery for this step so please forgive me.
cut a diagonal line half way and then cut a piece of wood the size of your hand.
screw the 2 pieces on t the crip and where the line is cover with tape.
stain over the tape and it will be almost invisible.
finally drill a hole in the grip for the arrow to sit in
Step 4: Almost Done
tie a piece of string to the top of the bow to the bottom

Your finished :)
I hope to get some wood dowl to make some arrows for it
