I tried to craft a bow but I can't find it listed anywhere in smithing. How do you make a bow?

You need the corresponding perk in the smithing tree (elven, glass, ebony, daedric, etc.).

What kind of bow are you trying to make?

Finding the Fiji Mermaid is like playing Calvinball. You can never do it the same way twice.
Use the search function before asking questions!

I believe a hunting bow can be made with firewood, or maybe it was just to improve one.....
Now that I think of it, I don't think you can make bows.

You can make bows, just need the perk for what you're trying to make it out of

You can make a basic bow at the start by using some wood, but you need the smithing perks if you want to craft anything of a higher quality material.

It requires wood and some string you get from killing spiders, and you have to use a crafting table.

I thought you could only upgrade your starting long bow w/ firewood, not craft one.
Anyway upgrade materials for starting bows are
Long bow: Fire Wood
Hunting bow: Leather Strips
Imperial bow: Steel Ingot
hunting bows are augmented by the Steel smithing perk

it's just like any other weapon, you need the smithing perk to make any certain kind of bow.
