With a Spoon

My brother pointed these out to me, so I had to try it myself.

This is a trade point arrowhead that I made from from a flattened out spoon I bought from the dollar store.

This was attempt #3, and the first one that I wasn’t embarassed by.

Steps:

1. Get spoon.
2. Hammer it flat.
3. Draw out the arrowhead shape.
4. Rough-cut with a hacksaw.
5. Clean up with belt sander, file, and finally sharpening stone.
6. Take pretty picture

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.
