PVC Bow #1

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while, but I finally made a bow following the instructions of The Backyard Bowyer.

It’s made out of PVC pipe, which has been heated shaped so that the PVC flattens out toward the tips, making it more flexible toward the tip, just like in a traditional bow.

It’s a very light bow, but it’s really fun.

The next one I’m going to try to make a recurve.
