So, with all the projects going around about Skyrim, I thought I'd share my own! I will show you how to make a wooden Orcish dagger, and when you level it up you get 8(?) Damage in an object that only weighs 3 and has a base value of 30 gold! I think this is your winner even if I do prefer elven.

So what you need is a piece of wood you will be using for the dagger
Airdry clay
gray paint
leather strips
Hot glue gun
Dremel (Not unnecessary but very helpful)
wood shaver
half circle files
sand paper

Step 1: Shaping

Draw your design onto the wood you chose, I made my dagger about 12'' long. Put the wood in the vice and start sawing.
Then when you get the main shape, start going in closer. My wood split a little but I filled it in later. 

Then get out your dremel/file and start shaping the grooves. Use your wood shaver to make the handle round, not square-ish. Look at pictures.
Owch, broke both arms? So much for dirt biking! Hope you feel better after that!
won't be making anything for a while. got it a dirtbike accidentt and broke both arms. currently ''pecking'' he keyboard to type
Dude... that's skill right there.
Haha, thanks, glad you liked it.
:D Of course!
that's a very interesting design and the finished piece is way cool...
Thanks! You can't really see it in the pictures but the butt of the handle has a silver finish. Hope the instructions were clear.
