Step 1: Materials

You will need 
1) large piece of pine

4) 2 srews
5) Sand paper
and some string
 tools=
1) coping saw
2)drill press (hand drills work to)
3) Screwdriver
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

almost done,
tie a piece of string to the top of the bow to the bottom

    Im glad you like it, my HD cameras cable that you use to upload picturesto my computer is missing so the final result picture is not that great (The wood is the wrong colour and where the tape is its more visible) but when I find it I will get some better pictues up. If you have any more requests then you can ask them on my orangeboard

    What sort of pistol do you mean? Like a revolver or a glock or something?

    Ok, I will get started soon, at the moment I am making an abraham lincon: vampire hunter axe, like the one in the movie, but when I finish then I will get started :)
