Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Make the Riser

Draw it on the paper. And then stick the wood blocks i'm not very sure the types of wood. use band saw for the first shape. and then use sand paper, drums, different files...

Step 2: Make the Limbs

we should make a mold for the curve of limbs. i use 2 slices of fiberglass and 2 slices of maple. measure is 1700mm*50mm*1.2mm.

Step 3: Finish Job

put the camo tape on the surfaces. now we can go out for a shot.
