Completely not as cool as your build (or anywhere near as nice looking) but I just found out about pac bows. Cost is considerably less for materials and time is within the realm of me actually getting one built. Planning to do one as a starter bow for my 2 and 4 year olds. You can even get up to about a 45 pound draw weight (at ~28 inches) from some of the designs. Now to decide whether to make the starter a long bow or a recurve... ideas as to which is better for young kids?
Long bows are better for the 2 and 4 year olds, safer an easier to make.

Awesome.....

..Is the best word I can come up with.

Are these hunting bows? Sorry if the answer is obvious but I have not clue about bow and arrows lol..

I have a coworker who does bow hunting. I would show these to him but I think he might soil his pants lol..
