How to Make a Bow

The type of bow I’m making is a European styled flat bow. This bow was used for hunting and fighting in Europe. The first step to making one of these bows is to get a hatchet or ax and a bush knife. Then you need to find a nice hard-wood tree to make a stave. Once you completed these steps cut the tree down at the bottom, cut the limbs off, and bring it to your work place. This is where the bush knife comes into play. Take your bush knife and take ALL the bark off.

At that point put your left hand on the tip of the sharp edge and the right hand on the handle and edge it down and towards you. At that point slide the cutting edge with power on the wood and cut it until you achieve the center with is the amazingly critical step in the center. Complete this on all sides until nothing is left except for that. Once that is done, you ought to have a bit of wood around 2 inches in breadth. On the off chance that these strides are done, you have to take your shrub blade and cut about a large portion of an inch into the fight until it’s a rectangular board. It now ought to be around 1/2 wide and.40-.50 of an inch thick and some place around 60-72 creeps in length.

Presently, around one inch from the top and base slice it to a point, so it meets in the center. At that point, take a record and document an indent on the top and base for your bow string. Right now you have to rub Danish oil on all the sides of the bow. When this is all done, get some nylon and string your bow. Leave the bow set up for around 1 week. In the event that you fire it before then the bow will in all probability split or break. After the week has passed, get a creature leg tendon or any sort of muscle tissue, alongside some creature fat. Once done take the leg tendon or muscle and sledge it into strands and place onto the bow fight, then blaze the creature fat until a glue.

At that point place onto the bow & arrows over the strands. Ensure that you cover the WHOLE range with strands and glue. Let dry for 1 month if utilizing creature fat and 2 weeks if utilizing standard paste. After every one of this is done it’s a great opportunity to make the bolts. Attempt to locate a decent cedar sapling, on the off chance that you can’t discover cedar utilize any hardwood that is straight and around 0.25 creeps thick. At the end of the day use Danish oil on it once its de-woofed. Get any arrow point either online or by blacksmithing it yourself. Lock the arrow point on with left-more than tendon strands and utilize paste to secure it. At that point get some goose plumes, cut them down the middle and paste three on the bolt. After the greater part of the above is done you ought to have a to a great degree well working bow and bolt.
