NOTE: If you do not have wood burning tools, I list a alternative method to the burning in step #5
NOTE #2: You can apply this method to many other types of designs and get a nice finished product!
Tool list :
Wood (preferably 1 x 6 in. by at least 38 inch)
Carpenters square (big and small type helps, but the small type and a good straight edge will do)
Jigsaw or bandsaw or scrollsaw
Circular saw (optional but will save mass time and make a nice straight line for taking off horizontal excess)
woodburning / pyrography source (optionally a solder gun)
wood chisels or Dremel or * maybe razor blades if your risky (be extremely careful if you use razor blades)
Sandpaper / palm sander
Black spray paint (quality of paint isn't really a issue, I opted for the cheap dollar store stuff)
Cardboard (preferably as long as your piece)
Sorry for the lack of extensive photo documentation of every step here. I did not think do to a instructable until after completion, I did however photo document the general steps so that helps a lot, you should be able to get the gist of what I did here.
