Vance's Bows

(If you've seen my facebook page then you've probably already seen these pictures, but I wanted to post them on my blog, too. Vance is very proud of them and he should be.)

This bow is the first one that Vance made. It's made out of PVC pipe. I really had my doubts that it would amount to much, but he totally proved me wrong. It works really well. This is his second bow. It's a long bow. He made this one with the help of his dad. There was a lot more work involved in this wood one. They had a great time making this together and for their first one, it really turned out nice. Vance shot it for the first time and the arrow went clear through his target and stuck in the wood behind it. I think it works. Vance loves this bow--he's even named it. They've also stained it since I took this picture. it's now a mahogany color. I think the two of them are already planning the next one. Before I know it, I'll have a garage full of homemade bows.
