Making a Daedric Bow

Jim at Stormthecastle.com brings us a great tutorial on building a reproduction of the Daedric Bow from "Skyrim".   Even if you're not into video game props his technique, using laminated sheets of foamcore, is worth a watch.  It's an incredibly cheap material that can produce surprisingly strong items thanks to it's inherently composite nature.  Those layers of paper, foam, and glue help disperse stress throughout the entire structure.  More importantly, foamcore is ideal for cutting precise parts based on easily printable paper patterns.
