Step 1:

Floor plan

Step 2:

The wood bought is cylindrical and easy to process.

Step 3:

Cut the outline first, then finely engrave with different types of flat knives. Because it will be polished and polished later, it cannot be made the same thickness as the original.

Step 4:

Use the electric drill to open the upper half to the first spherical position and the lower half to the end spherical shape. The connection between the two sections is made of Mortise and tenon joint structure, the socket is made of 7mm drilled slot, and the 8mm round boring drill for the plug is specially set aside for 1mm and then slightly thinned with sandpaper. This is to make the joint stronger. compact. The insertion length of the joint is 1.5cm (the fixing capacity of 1.5cm is sufficient, and it can't be too long, otherwise the upper part of the fourth joint will be thin)

Step 5:

After completing the above, it is an engraving rune, and the choice to engrave before the combination is for easy control. Use a thin line to make a cross mark to mark the position of the four-sided rune (this is more accurate than visual observation). After drawing the rune, engrave it with a 1mm drill.

Step 6:

Drilling a hole is divided into three steps: For the first time, first use a spherical drill bit smaller than the actual hole to punch holes, because the original hole is not a simple circle, each one is different, so a little modification, if you use the same size The small hole made directly by the drill bit will be very stiff. The second step uses a 5mm tapered sanding head to modify the edge of the hole and the surrounding to make a rounded effect, avoiding the straight up and down punching without the lack of smoothness, resulting in an unsightly surface. Finally, sandpaper and wool polishing heads are used to remove surface roughness.

Step 7:

The feather for the rod core is 22cm wide and 0.2cm wide, and the length of the rod core is 33cm. The front end is hollow and not "not full", but in the setting is this, the role is to export magic. Although this is a bird feather, it is as solid as a scale, with a slender feather and a sharp feather. The appearance is dull and black, the ghost is gloomy, and it fits perfectly with the setting of the Thestrals.

Step 8:

In order to highlight the natural color of wood, there is no chemical coating, but the grass wood dyeing process is used. The gallnut boiled water is heated until it is nearly closed, and the purified purple-grey pigment is obtained after the residue is filtered. First, it is applied to the spherical surface and then excessively to the surrounding area. It is naturally dried for 2 hours, and then repeated 5-7 times. The sandpaper sharpens the angular position, which makes the natural aging effect of the vicissitudes of the times.

Step 9:

Compared with the original.
