Two things – firstly this is far, far simpler and easier to build than it looks. Anyone with some basic DIY skills and common hand-tools should be able to manage to build this take-down bow, no bother at all. Secondly just because this take-down bow is made using some skis, it isn’t expensive to build, in fact the whole project costs less than $20!
My advice – get on eBay, Craigslist and start looking at local yard sales for some old skis to use to make this awesome DIY take-down bow. If you are lucky you should be able to pick up an old set of skis for around $10. Check out the link below for the excellent step-by-step, full photo build tutorial. There are even some downloadable and printable PDF instructions at the very end of the tutorial, so make sure you get them too!
