Step 1: Materials
a 4' x 4' sheet of 3/4" plywood
jig saw or band saw
silver, yellow and black paint
Step 2: Initial cuts
Once this is done, glue and clamp them together. Wait for about 12 to 24 hours before you take off the clamps.
Step 3: Detailing
Step 4: Adding the rim and some color
When it is dry, remove the painters tape and apply a coat or two of wood stain to darken the wood a bit.
Don't worry about if your silver "metal" rim comes out perfect or if the stain is a little rough. This is supposed to be a replica of something made quickly in haste of a war.
