Step 1: Wrap the 1m Length of 12mm Pine Dowel With Duct Tape in the Middle and Both Ends, So That Two 1m Lengths of 15mm PVC Tube Just Slide Over.
Step 2: Now Seperate the Two 1m Lengths of 15mm PVC by About an Inch and Run Tape Between to Stop the Wooden Dowel From Falling.
Step 3: Now Tape the 15mm PVC in Three Spots (mid and End) So the 20mm PVC Just Slips Over
Step 4: Now Tape Both Ends of the 20mm Pvc
Step 5: Now Cut 150mm From Both 15mm Ends to Shorten the Bow
Step 6: Now Cut the Nocks and String It With a Loop of Paracord
Step 7: Now Find a Target. Lightweight Carbon Arrows Work Great.
