First off, if you want to repair a bow in Minecraft in the most efficient way, you’re going to need an anvil. You can craft one of these using three iron blocks and four iron ingots. Once you have an anvil, open up your inventory and place the bow that you want to repair in the left slot. In the right slot, you’ll need to put an item that can be used to repair the bow.

If you don’t have the required items though, you can simply use another bow to repair your damaged bow.

Once you have the items in the correct slots, all you need to do is right-click on the anvil and your bow will be repaired!

If you can’t get enough iron for an anvil, you can use a simple crafting table instead. Simply put two bows side by side in the crafting grid and it will give you a bow that has more durability.

As you can see, repairing a bow in Minecraft is a fairly simple process. Just make sure that you have the correct items and you’ll be good to go!
