In this project I want to show you how to make a Wooden Wolf Paw Pendant, Keychain or Wall Decoration. I made a video and step by step instruction how to make it.
So, let's get started :)
- Piece of wood
- Piece of twine or chain
- Chisel or cnc router
- Belt sander
Step 1: Watch the Video
Video will give you a good overview on how to create a Wolf Paw. But the following steps will still contain some extra useful information.
Step 2: Prepare the Wood
To make my wolf paws I used wanlut wood. I cut few pieces and leveled the surface to 5mm on cnc machine and belt sander. Wood planer can do it faster and better but my is in bad condition.
Step 3: Make the Wolf Paw
Time to cut wolf paw. Pattern file (PDF and DXF) to download below. I made aslo STL file, so you can print it.
You can use chisel, drill or cnc machine. I used cnc machine to make 1 big paw to decoration wall in my home and 4 small to make pendants or keychain.
To improve the edges use sand papper or belt sander. Additionally, I smoothed the outer edges.
Step 4: Paint, Oil, Resin.
To finish my paws I used different methods.
I filled the holes with epoxy resin and painted with clear coat
I just put on a tung oil.
