Watch: Quick DIY PVC Bow Without Heat or Power Tools

This video gets right down to it, showing us one way to make a good, useful bow using PVC, some fiberglass rods, and some paracord–without any heat or power tools.

It’s super simple, and clearly works well. He uses fiberglass “driveway markers” slipped into the 3/4″ PVC to give it more strength and spring.

He says its draw weight is about 35 pounds.

After about the halfway point, he starts to wander and there’s nothing else about this bow build… so it really is a quick little video. Check it out.
