Introduction: 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!!!

You're right the movie is stupid.

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

Boomerang always come back.

WILL YOU JOIN THE POTATOES IN THE FIGHT FOR MIDDLE EARTH OR WILL YOU COWER IN THE CORNER WITH SNUFFLES THE PENGUIN?!

Where's the template found

in the intractable. there is a picture of the boomerang on some concrete in step 1. size it up properly and print it out. this isn't rocket science. a potato can do this. are you a potato?

Does it come back

If it does then it would hit you. LIKE A BOOOSSSSSS
