Sorry im a bit confused on ur images when u say just cut and sand. now i see your sketch on the wood, but why does it feel that its not just a simple cut like you say. i see angles all around the edges of the wood that stops at the lines you made. can u explain a bit better how you did that, i want to start making props so something like that will need to be explained to me, ty
Ahhhh, ok, yes, I trace themain shape onto the wood, once the edges have been cleaned and smoothed, I bevel the edges with a belt sander, is like... sharpening a real sword, but in wood. I just try to give a more realistic look.
^^ thank you! and dont worry, I think that the most important thing is the initial drawing/sketch, the rest is just cutting and sanding, try! never give up! if in the first try you get a "no good", try again, if you dont know how to, just ask
