Introduction: How to Make a Bow and Arrow(traditionly)
this will show u how to make a real bow and arrow the real way!!!
u will need:
a cocking pot or pan,
matches or a lighter,
wood(from a pine tree),
string(string,lether or something of the sort)
and a rock.
Step 1: The Bow
this is the important part. u will need 1,5 meters of wood(pine tree recommended) or as much as the ur height. take ur string and tie a knot at the the edge of the bow and then wrap the rope 3 times around the knot and the same thing i recommend that the space in between the string and the bow is about 45 degrees. p.s.u can find pine at the edge of a river it grows on the side of the river it has a bend in it most of the time.
Step 2: The Cheap Arrow
this is the best way to make an arrow from wood.u will need to find a strait branch that is the Leigh of ur arm or longer if to long just cut it. it must have 0,5cm to 1cm of thickness take of all small twigs on the branch so its as round as posible then charpen the tip with a knife sharpen the tip and ur done or go to next step .p.s.go to next step if u want a real native style arrow.
Step 3: The Professional Arrow
i recommend that u have and adults help in this step.get a small fire going but first go find some tree sap and but it in a pan.now u must fire harden the stick hold it up to the fire 5 seconds per area on the stick so that it cooks the inside.to make a stone arrow head smash the rock on the ground or on a bigger rock Intel u see a good shard that can be used.okay ounce u star the fire wait 10 min and collect the burn wood that is black. collect about 1 tbls of it and crush it into powder with a rock or a mortar and pilon melt. the tree sap in the pan over the fire intel its a liquid mix the powder quick now sread it on the tip of the arrow and the botom of the arrow head stick them to getter and let it dry.p.s.the mixture dryes realy fast so dont take ur time.
