Picture of How to make Sokka's Boomerang (ATLA)
So nobody on the internet has anything on how to make Sokka's boomerang. People have made it but no one knows how to. So here I will show you how to make the boomerang from the cartoon not the stupid movie version.

Step 1: Basic shape

I cut out the basic shape and then I marked where the 2 holes go. The wood I was using is just 3/4 inch thick common board. I traced a
picture of his boomerang from google to get the right shape. After I drilled the holes I gave the whole thing a light sanding.

Step 2: Sand the edges.

Next, I sanded the edges. I noticed that the boomerang in the show has an almost blade-like edge. So to get that I sanded the edges on an angle and then did the same on the other side. Only sand the edges on the outside, NOT the inside. Then I cut that little itsy bitsy notch on the tip.

Step 3: Painting time!

First, I painted all the OUTSIDE edges white. Then I masked off the white when it dried and painted everything else blue. Once everything is dry, spray a clearcoat over it all. DONE!!!

I didn't really airfoil it the right way but if you did it would probably come back
You're right the movie is stupid.

I THINK EVERYBODY AGREES THAT THE SHOW IS A MILLIARD TIMES BETTER THAN THE MOVIE.
Cool

Thank you so much! I was thinking about selling these considering the fact that no one does. Let me know if you guys would buy one. :)

Does it fly? Did you make the proportions by eye balling it, or did you use a guide so it will return when flown? Or, is it just for looks?

It does fly far but it does not really come back. With a hard throw it might go about 40 feet and then turns toward the ground. It's for stuff like costumes and fans of ATLA, not particularly throwing.
