    This is a small compilation of images of how I create the bow of "The Hood/Green Arrow" from the series "Arrow".

    Step
    1
    I started with making a mold of a still that I get from the album in the RPF.

    Step 2
    I cut a large block of wood to a 3 cm wide by 50 cm long piece. Then I draw the curves of the bow and begin with the sandpaper.

    This is the first version

    Later I will continue sanding till I get a more accurate version.

    Step 3
    The bow arms.
    To be continue....





    P.S.: I from Argentina and I'm trying to keep a good impression but if I have any mistake pronouncing or writing any word please let me know.
    Thanks!!!

    Is this a fully functioning bow or is it just for show. I only ask because you said you made the limbs out of plastic (I know this can be done but I just want to double check) :d

    BOW MARK II
    Since that my last version was a complete failed I made a new one now with mood limbs. It can not bend because it may break but with an elastic string I can create the illusion of shooting.

    You can also find boat cleats in brass like the screen used bow if you are looking for a metal part. Build is looking great so far man.

    Would you give away instructions to build this or would you sell the instructions?

    Cut wood in the same shape of the bow and sanded like crazy until you see what is in the photos.
