Dagger by xanene Dagger by xanene
I was bored this one day so I just took some Balsa wood left overs and smacked them together with some some glue, paint and patience....


Just fore the record: the only tools I used was an x-acto knife and sandpaper. The balsa I got from a model train shop but everything else I got from Canadian Tire.

"the tools don't make the artist"

Started to make a balsa sword once but didn't have the patience back then. I should try again, yours looks fantastic. ;)

Thank mate!^^

You are right about that that it takes patience, and plenty of it too...
Screw up one coat of paint and you ruin the 2 previous once along with it. Not to mention the sanding...

This is amazing. Balsa wood is used for a lot of fishing lures. I love to learn how you did this. I've always wanted to make fishing lures.
