Minecraft: How to Make a Bow

In Minecraft, you can create a Bow to help defend yourself at a safe distance.

To make a Bow, you’ll need a Crafting Table, three Sticks, and three pieces of String which can be found by killing Spiders. Spiders can typically be found at night, or early in the morning as the sun is coming up.

Place your pieces into the Crafting Table like the picture shows below. You’ll notice that it is the same basic shape as a real Bow.
