basic bow making


Making an altalt is fairly simple. Take a scrap peace of wood that is about 30"long 2"wide and half inch thick. Mark a line 2'' from the top and starting 1/2'' from one side cut it at an angal so at the 2'' line it in an inch wide.DO NOT CUT PAST THAT LINE. Stop and cut on the 2'' line stoping at the last cut so you have a handal(the 1/2'' angaled to 1'' )that on the end has a 2'' by 2'' lump on the end. cut a 1/2'' pass the 2'' line folowing the 1/2 to1'' cut and thin turn to the top left cornor of the lump. sand well round all  cornors .

for arrows just make longer and make the nock the other way
