Reviews about Simple PVC Pipe Bows: A Do-It-Yourself Guide to Forming PVC Pipe into Effective and Compact Archery Bows (7):
Light out of Fildon
This book is a fantastic introduction to building bows out of PVC pipe. Nick provides much of this material on his free youtube channel, so you may be thinking, why buy the book? However, the book provides added detail and a broader base of understanding behind the creation of these bows (as well as aspects of archery in general), not to mention all the bonus content provided, such as how to make a bow string, and how to make arrows out of bamboo shafts - the latter alone will save you hundreds of dollars that you might have spent otherwise on commercially made arrows. It shows you how to make bows in a logical progression, starting from a simple bow that serves as a basis for later projects, then working up to more and more complex shapes. I wish I'd had this book when first starting out (would probably have saved me a lot of time and headache). What the book and the youtube channel do is nicely complement each other. The book provides depth and detailed instructions while the channel provides additional visuals and inspiration. Hats off to Nick for writing a great manual.

My (10 year old) grandson who had just taken up archery, asked me if we could make a bow. I said "I don't know let's find out." I found several YouTube videos and wasn't too impressed, until I found Nick Tomihama's video. With PVC pipe and fiber glass core. After $10 of parts, and about 45 minutes and letting my grandson do most of the work, he had a real 40# bow. I bought this book to experiment with more complicated, but not too difficult designs we could do together. The book demonstrates the authors knowledge and experience, but keeps the designs simple enough that parents and kids can do (and learn) something together. Well documented with lots of pictures and drawings.

This book has the measurement charts and all the details to make your won working archery bow from PVC pipe. I made one and am amazed at how well it works for such a humble material. A 10 foot length of 3/4" pipe cost less than $2.00 and has enough material to make two bows. Compare that price to a commercial bow, even one from a garage sale, and not only do you have a bargain bow, but have also gained a new skill by making it. How cool is that?

I am in process of making a PVC bow following Nick's directions. His writing is clear and to the point. There are a few places I could've used a few more details and description, but viewing his YouTube videos, published under the user name BackYard Bowyer, cleared up most questions. I recommend this book for anyone who is interested in giving this a try.

the whole thought process in making a pvc bow was just very interesting to me. The instructions and pictures are well done, he even has youtube videos. Support creative people like him and purchase their books, that's why I purchased them.

The five star rating is more of a review of Nicholas in general. The book is definitely useful - it contains step-by-step instructions for building three different types of PVC bows. In addition, the most basic of these three designs can be used as a starting point for other types of bows as well. I did find some of the steps to be a little unclear, however, Nick also has a ton of videos on YouTube that can be used to supplement the material in the book.

I am completely new to archery - I purchased a small bow for my son for Christmas to give us a new sport/hobby to do together. I was about to purchase a bow for myself when I stumbled upon this book. Rather than buying a new bow, I decided to make one. There has definitely been a lot of trial-and-error so far, but I am confident that at some point soon I will be able to produce a decent bow.

There is no question that Nick makes it look easy, but it will take a good amount of time and patience in order to become proficient. However, I believe that it is a very approachable project for the average do-it-yourselfer. And the best part is that you can do it with a minimal amount of work space, tools and expense.

Great Book, Work well with his YouTube channels.
Love this book! I've made about 8 bows so far and given most of them away. Now that most of my friends have bows I think I can start charging for them. I've used the techniques learned in this book to make a few other things too, now that I'm more familiar with working with PVC.
