New Day New project.....


Recommended Posts

Well today picked out some wood for a project I'm doing....going to be making a wood sheath and matching handle for one of my son's 6 swords. This one is a Bastard Sword or also known as a Hand and a Half.

the wood used will be Padauk also known as Vermillion with Juglans Nigra also known as Dark Walnut

thanks guys

@Mikeyb ya I have a local guy that usually has pretty much anything I can afford...lol some of this wood is crazy expensive.....looking at Santo Rosewood .....not bad at $44 a board foot..........

anyways here is what I got so far.....have all measurements cut into 3 and marked off for angle cuts. the sheath will have walnut on an angle at top and bottom

ok so it's back to square one....(no pun intended) let's say back to a solid piece of wood again......only difference is now the blade fits perfectly in the square well not really a square.....planed it down to S4S then will sand once I cut out top groove for blade handle and shape bottom end.....

ok so the scabbard for the sword is complete, from the top to the bottom I tapered it by 1/8" to a rounded point. here it is after 280/600 grit sanding.....handle is next.......
