Introduction: PVC Crossbow
this is an easy project and for you who are not patient your lucky because this
project has no glue, it can be made with scraps.
Step 1: Metirils
2-2 foot 1'' PVC
1-3.5 feet 1/2'' PVC
4 foot long piece of string
3-1'' long screws
1/2'' drill bit [or just big enough to fit the screw head]
5 millimeter drill bit [just smaller then the end of the screw]
[note-you don't have to use exact measurements and you don't have to the gray pipe]
Step 2: Making the Bow
First you need to saw an inch down the middle as seen in picture 8 Then tie a not at the end of the string like in picture 6
Then slip it into the cut at the top of the pipe. then line up your string with the pipe like in picture 3 tie a not in the string about 6'' from the end of the pipe. Bend the pipe so that you can fit the knot in if it looks like picture 2 your set but if it is straight tie the knot farther away.
lastly put black tape on the edge like in picture 7 and 10.
Step 3: Spliting the Pipe
Next take your 2 foot 1'' pipe and saw as straight as you can right down the middle when you get to the middle of the pipe stop.
First make sure the pipe without the cut is about an inch away from where the other starts like in picture1 find where about the cut gos to and go 4 inches away from the cut so your not drilling under the cut drill a hole [with the big drill bit] like in picture 3 in the pipe without a cut then find where the hole lines up with the another pipe and drill a hole with the small bit like in picture 14 then screw a screw though both pipes like in picture 4 d the same thing 6 inches away from the first one on the side without the cut
Step 5: Puting the Bow On
put the string inside the split pipe then put the bow in the space in the pipes and tape it all up!
Step 6: Arrows
All you have to do to make arrows is split skewers
Step 7: Shoot
put the split end on the string pull back and let go! thats it thanks!
