if your after a great muck around project

http://www.instructables.com/id/Make-a-takedown-bow-from-skis/

I made one of these a while back
hours of fun for me and my young fella to make
and has been a blast to shoot, (around 40 pound draw)
would be close to 12 months ago we made it and its still going strong
