Chop a tree. Wait three years. And then you can make yourself a longbow.
Well in order to make it, it still requires a hell of a lot work, because you still gotta axe the wood plank down to the proper shape. Then you have to shave it in all the right places, before sanding the damn thing so you can actually hold it. Then you just have to cut it just right in order to stick that rope holder thing on. And then you have to keep doing all of that over and over again until it's perfect.
That’s not so bad, I guess?
