So far I’ve been able to get all the materials I need, but have hit a snag trying to find time to get into the workshop with other things coming into play. I was able to make a cardboard cutout that was an inch too big on the blade but still helped me trace out the places i want to cut for the tip and handle. This should still be useful as the rest is curved parts so I want to the most material as to not undercut those curves. The cardboard outline felt like it was in the right scaling for length a feel. You can see the drawn outline on the wood pieces here:
I’m planning to head in to the wood shop at the end of every day and in between classes. Worst case, I go to BLDG61 on the weekend and do painting over the weekend as well.
