Step 1: Materials
What I used to make my gun:
- Cardboard tube that Lowes was going to throw away.
- Pudding Cups (not in picture)
- Pringles can
- Yard stick that I got for free (not in picture)
- Toilet paper roll
- Old cardboard box (not in picture)
- 1ft. of old board (not in picture)
Step 2: Making the handle
After I brought the board inside I placed my fingers on it in the way I would hold it. Then I drew around each of my fingers. Then I took a 3/4 in. drill bit and drilled out each hole making sure there was at least 1/4 in. around each hole so it wouldn't break.
After that I took a coping saw and cut around the outside of each hole to make it look cooler.
Finally I sanded around all of the edges to make it more rounded.
Step 3: Putting on decorations that make it look cool.
Step 4: Attaching the handle to the barrel (part 1)
To attach the handle to the barrel I cut about a 2in. x 3/4in. rectangle into the end of my barrel. To cut this I used my dad's rotary tool and a cut-off wheel. Then I just slid the handle in there and hot glued it in.
