I found a bunch of pictures that I had never posted last year I thought I would put on the blog. The first was a small garbage can (not my original idea) that I made for my dad’s camper. I teased it here.
Next were two process pictures I took while making the wooden Zelda masterswords. One was routing the blade edges and the other was the carnage that resulted from their production.
Christmas tree bracing
The final picture is of the repair job I had to do for our Christmas tree. My initial build was sturdy enough for me to gently move it about, but did not survive so well from our movers last summer. I took the whole thing apart and added a brace to the entire length of every level, plus a handle to pick the thing up with.

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.
