I would like to make a bow and some arrows, but I don't know how. Do any of you know of some links, or know how to make one.

I'm interested in this too, so I did a search on Google. I found some good stuff. However, I don't have the time or resources for such a project right now. Let me know how it turns out!

In answer to your question: Yes, I do know how to make a bow and arrows. It took me about 2 hours of woodworking, plus another hour more for testing and arrow making. Check out some designs by google searching, but its a very simple principle to get. Some springy wood (I used yew) is basically it you need, maybe some hand grips (leather) and the bow string will get you started. Arrows are a little more complicated, but you can find how by searching too. Isn't the internet great? Have fun on your project.
