Tree Golem Views by finaformsora
Tree Golem Views
  I thought I'd upload something since it's my birthday. 

  This is a tree golem light I made for my girlfriend for christmas. She likes trees and she makes these golems in minecraft as guardians of our bases.

  It's powered by a battery pack hidden inside, and there is a toggle switch on the back to turn it off and on. The base comes off to replace the batteries and has foam on it to protect the surface its on from being scratched. 

  Made from solid hickory, with a bright red LED. I cut a piece of clear plastic I had laying around and used some frosted glass spray from krylon to diffuse the light and hide the bulb behind the eyes. Each "block" is 2"x 2" making it 6" tall.

  I thought I'd upload something since it's my birthday.

  This is a tree golem light I made for my girlfriend for christmas. She likes trees and she makes these golems in minecraft as guardians of our bases. They have signs on them to show their names and rank.

Hey!

  So I've recently started a new project in which I will make the master sword and sheath and hylian shield. The long term plan will be to make a mold and cast these from plastic, but for right now I need to focus on making the wooden masters. I think I'll still need some practice casting before I can move onto large molds like these. As you know, I already posted some pictures showing the sword and shield layers cut out. As of today, I've finished carving the "wings" on the guard and all that's left on the sword is the center section including the handle, pommel, gem, and the bottom of the blade.

Right now the sword weighs less than 2 pounds, the shield is 13, and I can assume the sheath will be around 3. I still have to carve the front of the shield and hollow the back of the front half which should take off around 5 pounds. I put up a new youtube video here if you want to see the progress from yesterday.

Hylian Shield Wip 1 by finaformsora
Hylian Shield Wip 1
Since the last update, I've cut out one additional pine board, and two 1/8" mdf boards. I'm going to split the carving of the shield into two halves: the back flat back and the curved front sides.

 The mdf boards will have the design from the back of the shield and and one of the pine boards will add thickness and strength for the handle and arm straps. I think 1" should be thick enough, and the sides of the this half won't be curved, but flat. After I finish the back side, I'll screw bolts into the handle and attach the front side. I'll probably actually re-cut the mdf board with design cut into it since it's a bit off.

The front half will use the remaining two pine boards, and will be the curved decorated side of the shield. After I shape this side, I'll hollow out the inside to make it a bit lighter, and make sure the bolts from the handle and straps have room if I don't make them flush with the board.

Master Sword WIP 1 by finaformsora
Master Sword WIP 1
Since the last update I've angled most of the blade with a beltsander. I needed to add some thickness to the guard and handle, so I cut out another layer of poplar with that design, cut it in half on the bandsaw, smoothed out the inner sides on the beltsander, and glued one half on each side.

Hey, everyone! I'm a hobby woodworker/propmaker. Once I become great at what I do, I will refer to myself as a professional. I look forward to the day I am as good as volpin props, or deviantart's own RocknBlock and woodcarve.

How to commission me:

You can send a message to me on here or any of the profiles listed at the bottom of this text. When you send the request, please provide the prop name, the material you would like it to be made from, when you need it by, and any special details.
For a custom prop, also provide one or two reference images.

For payment, I'll need half of the cost when I start and the other half when I finish. Paypal is the preferred payment method. If you live close enough, we could also arrange to meet in person to trade off. If I happen to be going to a con you are going to, we might be able to meet there, as well.

Keep in mind that I usually have other orders and it may be a while before I can get to yours.

Orders can be for any anime, tv, or video game weapon or accessory. Pretty much anything goes unless it's impossible for me at the time or for anyone.
