    You are one of the few people that actually know how a bow/ crossbow work! They DO NOT use a rubber band. I congratulate you sir.

    the bow was multiple lairs of bamboo that gets smaller and thiner and if you split the pvc pipe it could work but im not sure.
    also i dont think plywood would work
    ps. thanks for all the feedback

    This is not for you to build it is to give ideas to people and btw it is not hard to build from pics it is a pretty simple crossbow
    Just look at the pics and make your own from the ideas
    The bow is a split piece of bamboo
    The trigger is a right angle chunk of board that pushes the string off of the notch
    Thats about it

    yes, I made it with a split piece of bamboo and nylon string
    the bow is held on with normal string but I had to tape around the bamboo to stop it from breaking
