My cousin had moved to a new house and I wanted to make her a housewarming gift....I new she would like something for the wall...something antique looking.
Well...I thought about it and decided to make her a wooden sword :-)
Draw your desired shape on wood and cut it.
Then sand it.
I was in a hurry and stained the wood…it would be easier if you had patience and waited till you did all the needful decorations and then stained…wastes less time :-) if you are going to try it…do it that way!
