Introduction: Real Metal Looking Sword Out of Pallet Wood
I have always wanted a sword, since I made a viking shield it needed the Viking sword to go with...
Check out my YT channel:
Step 1: Processing the Stock
I am using beech pallet wood
Cut it to size
Mark the middle
Step 2: Forging
Draw out the shape of sword and shape it with chisel or wood plane
Hollow out the fuller with router or chisel it with gouge
Make Bevels using the wood plane
Step 3: Cross-guard
I have made through mortise hole to attach cross-guard to tang
Step 4: Make It Special
I made my own design on pommel and cross-guard and also carved +ULFBERH+T inside of fuller
Step 5: Handle
I Assembled the whole sword, sand it and wrapped it with cord
Step 6: Paint Job
Paint it with Silver (3 coats) then black from far away
first step will give you the look of cast iron
And then scrub it with thinner on piece of cloth do get steel look and aged finish ( but don't overdo it because you will remove all the paint)
Step 7: Sword to Be Proud of :)
This build came out perfect and I am super happy :3
