How to Make a Rifle

Introduction: How to Make a Rifle

In this instructable I will be showing you how to make a fake rifle. You will need a piece of wood, a jigsaw power tool, a pipe, and some carving tools.

Step 1: Get Piece of Wood

Take a piece of wood that is the size you want your rifle to be. Trace a the style of a rifle you want (easy way to do it is lay a toy rifle on the wood and trace it). Then have an adult take a saw or jigsaw to cut out the design.

Step 2: Get a Pipe

Get a metal pipe a long one is good. Then find a drill bit that is the size of the pipe and drill a hole in the wood where the nozzle should go.

Step 3: Get a Hammer

Get a hammer and push the pipe into the hole as much as you can. Then use the hammer to hit the pipe until it goes in.

Step 4: Get Some Carving Tools

Get some carving tools and start to carve out a trigger if you can. I am still not done carving the trigger.

Step 5: Done

If you want you can paint and polish it to make it look even better. This not a real rifle and can be dangerous if the metal pipe is sharp. Make sure not to swing it around
