Step 4: Cut Out the Batarang

The easiest way to initially cut out your outline is to make a series of small cuts perpendicular to your art to create a series of thin tabs. Then, you break away those tabs with a pair of pliers. If a tab is too hard to break, go back in and cut it into two. In the more detailed areas, you'll want to make many thin tabs. You can also go back and tab areas after you've removed adjacent material.

The closer you can get to your final outline, the less work you'll have to do on the grinder.

<p>Great Instructable! Love<br>the nod to safety. A few years ago I myself cut out some different<br>batarangs using similar techniques, which you can see from the photo<br>I posted. The Dark Knight trilogy is my favorite Batman series.</p>
<p>Those look great! The curves are not easy to do!</p>
<p>Yes...</p>
<p>Nice work. Can you actually throw them?</p><p>I voted</p>
Yes! We've thrown them a bunch.
<p>Of course! They are just like shurikens.</p>

You took the words right out of my mouth.
<p>I always vote for Batman stuff! Great build!</p>
<p>Epic build my friend..!!<br>You just got my vote :) </p>
<p>Thank you! Your Batman wall is fantastic.</p>
<p>Thanks for the tutorial! I made these with my son. I got some 24&quot; sawblades that worked great.</p>
<p>Go big or go home, right?! Those are super impressive, enough for a bat cave.</p>
