Classic bow with their hands

One option

The easiest way to do the onions whole, taking PVC pipe with a thickness of 4 cm. The length of the measure, based on the distance between the ends of the fingers in the extended state and the middle of the thigh. The ends of the pipe do notches where you attach the bowstring.

The product obtained is not very sturdy – it only a few times is enough.

Option two

It is a composite model, which will have to Tinker a little longer. But the design will be more durable and reliable.

  1. First, we need wood to cut the Central part (the base), to which will be attached to the shoulders. The width of the Foundation in the center 5 cm, and the edges – half inch. The bar for the workpiece has dimensions of 40 by 4 to 6 inches. Material – oak or birch. You can glue the blank of several layers of maple, beech or other wood.
  2. The shoulders do the same pipe PVC and reinforced with pieces of tubing of smaller diameter is inserted inside. Apply on the edges of the notches where you attach the bowstring woven from silk thread.

Cut out details at an angle (preferably just two). At edges, make a notch for the bowstring to a depth of 7 to 8 millimeters. The shoulders with the base connecting bolts M6 (under which it is necessary to drill holes).

Even easier to make the shoulders out of the skis – they are perfect. It is best to take a narrow ski, but wide will have to erode. Fit both plastic and wood products. In this case, the total length of the bow should be from 120 to 140 cm.

Compound bow

These models differ from the classical fact that due to the presence of blocks-eccentrics need to exert less effort when shooting. And precision and accuracy, and firing range increase. Popular with sportsmen and hunters use these block models as MK-CB50, Condor PKG, Orion, Hawk and others.

What you will need

A very simple option assumes:

  • Two powerful springs (on the car).

  • Screws the usual 30-35 pieces long and 4 pieces.
  • Ropes of synthetic materials (of a bowstring).
  • Bars of wood with a length of 46 cm (2 pieces for the shoulders), length 40 cm, width 4 cm and thickness 2 cm (2 pieces for the base) with a length of 16 centimeters and the same length and width with notched edges (2 pieces for the fastening of the springs).
  • Hacksaw.
  • Jigsaw.
  • File.
  • Screwdriver.
  • Sandpaper.

Make a base by attaching the edges of the bar sorokametrovoy two small shestnadcatiletnih. Use for fastening the corners. Strengthen the construction of long screws. Bring the surface to smoothness with sandpaper. To the shoulders fasten the U-shaped brackets wheels (which make the slots on the ends of the shoulders). Axes will serve as studs.

At the edges of the bases fasten the furniture hinge (of the veil). Paint all parts (best from a can of paint, it dries fast). Then attach loops to the shoulders (in the middle) to the front end, and screwed the corners. They will hook it springs which the second end engages a recess in the bars of the framework. There was only the string to pull.
