Introduction: Takedown Bow

It's a takedown recurve bow with 40lbs.

Not too much to say about the steps to make.

The steps of " how to make a bow " has been listed clearly in my another Instructables.

For the Riser, I use Elm hard wood. And for the limb, I use Fiber Glass sheet.

I wrap artifical leather onto the fiber glass sheet to make it looks traditional.

I like this design, and you?

P.S: "Takedown" means that the bow comes apart in 3 pieces,

this feature makes it very portable.

It is very easy to transport as well as store.

The whole package size is just 60*30*10cm.

So small package, isn't it?

I've made 40/45/50lbs takedown bow till now,

I think 45lbs is best for hunting. What's your opinion?

What did you use to attach the fiber glass to the wood instead of glue?
