So, I only have this weekend and a few school days (8-13 January) to make my Claymore to accompany my William Wallace essay for school.
The problem is, the weather is being a bitch and from one moment to another it might start raining. I obviously can't work in the rain but even if it isint raining I can't set my stuff up with the pavement wet and humid, it would damage the wood and it wouldn't be very safe to use power tools.

Today I drawed and planned everything. Tomorrow I hope the day is cool so I can cut, sand and glue everything up.


Sorry for the Yule stuff, we are repacking things...

Btw, if you are interested, check out my katana Project!

NOTE: Ill be getting the material for painting and coating for both the Claymore and Katana once the first one is built.

Well I failed delivering the Clay, but my work isint yet evaluated nor posted on the schools walls so I guess I still have time  :roll:

2 weeks ago I cut down the MDF, blade handle and guard


Now I must unite the pieces and start sanding...

The Claymore Project is back on tracks! Although Im actually going more for a long/bastard fantasy sword. Thx Michael Moorcock for inspiration. It will basically be my picture of Stormbringer or Mournblade materialized.

Sanding today since the main parts are already cut. Updating soon.
