Hello everyone, I'm Daniel from Venezuela and this is my first post in TheRPF.

I am currently working on the golden sword of Finn from Adventure Time, made out of wood.

This are the measurements of the sword:

The blade is 50 cm long and 6,5 cm wide. Almost 2 cm thick.

The point of the blade is 5 cm from the top. This really cost me a lot to sand, me the result is enough for me.

The crossguard was made from 3 different pieces of wood glued together with Elmer's glue.
This is 4 cm tall, 13 cm wide.
Top / down view: 4,5 cm

Then I glued the blade and the crossguard but with a screw to secure both

The hilt measure was made at random. It is 11 cm long and 3 cm wide approximately. Then I carved to round it.

I put a screw and then glued to de crossguard

The bottom part is 2,5 cm in diameter
I carved a hole for the diamonds, those where some plastic jewelry I found in my house.

I painted the back part of the jewels in red and to reflect the color, and they look perfect!

I glued the jewels, let them dry, put a screw in the hilt y glued the tow pieces.
I also sanded the bottom of the hilt to round it and make them match.

When everything was put together and dry I started the details on the blade.
I used a handsaw to carve because I didn't want to use a dremel.

And here I have my finn's golden sword so far.

In my country spraypaint is really expensive, so I will save some money to finish it. Maybe I use an aerograph and use some gold and yellow mix in the blade.
I hope you like my first post here, very happy to be part of this community. And sorry for my english.
Greetings!

Thanks! The Finn sword is iconic, impossible not to recognize. Maybe I make a stand to mount on the wall, thanks for the idea.

If your going for wall mounting, how about a crossed swords set of this and Jake's sword?! Cool idea but I have just doubled your work lol!
