Mini-Master Swords

Mini-Master Sword

Last weekend I had some rare unaccounted for time and was able to crank out a project I’ve been meaning to do for a while.  I took the design my youngest and I put together for his Legend of Zelda Master Sword, and shrunk down quite a bit from the blade and two inches from the handle.  Instead of painting and staining details, I decided to try my hand at chip carving them instead.  (Check out this sword!)  I think for my first foray into that skill it came out ok, but I can definitely use some practice to improve.  I left one of the swords uncarved.

Wood Sign

I hammered out quite a few projects I’d been piling up this holiday weekend, this being the most time consuming.  It’s a wooden plaque for some friends of ours who just bought their first home.  Started life as a flat board I picked up at Michael’s, and after some carving, sanding, carving again, paint, detailing, scuffing, detailing again, and clear coat; it ended up looking like this.
