noob needs help w/bones

I have started playing w/ bones, and i need some help

i have tried all the internet sources i know of, and this is my last resort

i can make, connect, scal, etc. etc.

However i cant attach it to a simple cylinder

how do i attach a bone to a shape?

unfortunately, i cant get a pic cuz bones r invisible in renders

Can’t you take a screenshot of your work ?

Anyhow, as long as I know ( which is not far ^^), you attach a bone to vertices by puttig them in a vertex group with the same name that the bone.
