Homemade Bow Made Better




About: Hull, 15, like to make stuff, I like to use pvc pipe because you can make nearly anything from it and its strong!

I heated up the white pvc pipe and curved it around a bike wheel, then in the middle on the outside edge of the pvc I heated it up and flattened it and then tape it on the bow as shown in the pictures and then attaché string as seen in the pictures

    Okay, cheers for your advice, will look into some Dacron.

    It looks like you are using nylon rope/string for your bow. You can make it much better by switching to Dacron or polyester (not polyethylene). Dacron is a cheap, non stretch string while nylon will stretch to 4x its original length.
