I've been meaning to write this Instructable for almost a year after completing my Master Sword back in May 2009, but things have always seemed to get in the way until now.
I've always been a great fan of all of the Zelda games and I knew it was only time before I attempted to make a replica from one of the games.
So in this tutorial I will be showing you the steps I took to produce my Master Sword. I've gone for the sword from Twilight Princess as it's the most detailed Master Sword to date and it looks the best.
Update 27th May 2011
I've begun work on the Hylian Shield. You can follow my progress on my website http://www.jonsprojects.co.uk
I will be creating an Instructable when it's complete.
Step 1: Tools and materials
Files and rasps
Drill with various bits
Dremel (rotary tool) with various bits
Clamps (and lots of them)
Pine strip wood
Step 2: Design
After lots and lots of research I came up with the design I wanted to go for. Using lots of reference pics I drew a scale picture.
Using the attached picture in this step you can see the dimensions I used for each part.
After a few comments I've found the original photo of the plans, tidied them up a bit and uploaded them to some of my web space. Links below.
