This afternoon after church, we finished the master sword! Well cutting and assembling, we still need to stain some parts and paint on some details.

He’s been playing lots of Zelda lately, though we don’t have a Switch, and wanted me to build him a wooden Master Sword. The design above is what I planned out and finally settled on based on pictures and a cardboard mock-up we made to test the scale and measurements. We bought the board for it last weekend and should be cutting on Saturday. Hopefully I remember to take pictures throughout the process. I still haven’t gotten my oldest to decide what he wants to do with his axe. Teenagers…
