The great thing about this project is there are no special tools required to make the bow. All you need is a hobby knife or a pocket knife and that’s it. With this in mind it is also a nice little project for the kids.
I am not really too sure how powerful or effective a bow like this will be, but I am sure I have seen old Chinese or Japanese bamboo bows made from bamboo lashed together like this. If it worked for them, I can’t see why you can’t build an effective bow with this design, perhaps with some tweaks and adjustments.
