When I started out woodworking everything was understandably basic. The designs were very simple and blocky, un-elegant and looked like they were hastily thrown together. Today I’d like to think my skills have advanced, what with thinning the wood and shaving the edges and sanding everything smooth. We have how I started out and what I can do currently.

As a fellow wooden sword maker, it is definitely safe to say that after>before…

Did you leaf it or just spray it?

Looks great! I make swords too, for my grandsons. Is it hardwood? I used soft wood out of respect for my dau-in-law’s furniture, but slimming the handles down for 4-6 year old hands, they are not very servicable, break off to easy :-((
