Links Master Sword
Step 1: Supplies
First I went to go get my supplies for the sword. I chose to make it out of balsa wood. I got a 13 x 4 slab of balsa wood. Then I got two 13 in long sticks of balsa wood. I also got some long leather strips. also to cut the balsa wood I used an exacto knife.
Step 2: Cutting the Handle Parts
I cut all of the balsa sticks. I cut four pieces that are 4 inches each from the balsa sticks and two pieces I cut that were 6 inches. and I also cut a two 9 inch pieces of the balsa sticks for the handles. I cut the blade out of the balsa wood slab and I made the blade 30 inches long.
Step 3: Cutting Out the Blade
So first I sketched out in pencil what I wanted the shape of the blade to be then I cut the blade out of the balsa wood slab and I made the blade 30 inches long.
Step 4: The Design
On Links master sword there is three triangles on it. so what I did was I used a wood burner to make the triangles.
Step 5: Painting the Handle
I painted all of the cut up sticks of balsa wood purple.
Step 6: Painting the Blade
I decided to spray paint the blade. I painted it silver.
Step 7: Glue
Then i glued the pieces together.
Step 8: The Leather
The leather is for the handle. So i just wrapped it around the handle and used some glue so it wouldn't unwrap.
