I’m doing this project with my 10 year old Webelos (Boy Scouts). It’s an arrow pendant made form 22 gage sheet metal. While making it they get to use a hammer and blowtorch, both of which my scouts seem to love.

First you cut out a small square of metal. Then you use the same method as cutting a paper heart though instead you make an arrowhead. Trace the image onto the metal and cut it out. Use a ball peen hammer to texture the metal. Grind down any sharp edges. Oxidize the metal with a torch so it discolors. Use a piece of sandpaper to remove some of the oxidation to highlight the hammer blows. Finally use a constrictor knot to tie it on a piece of cotton cord.
<p>this is awesome!! too bad I don't have a lathe, but I can improvise.</p>

Very nice, and I can bet those boys had fun! What could be better than a hammer and a torch in your hands when your that age! :))<br><br>Hey, can we get a chance to win your metal smithing tools? LOL!
I bet those guys had a blast making those! I had to take a peek since at first I thought it was a real arrowhead :)
