Cronus update

So I haven’t done a lot of work on this guy since the temperatures have been exceedingly high in my area, but I need to get it done one way or another, so I have been working during my lunch break when its between 90-98 degrees outside. So far I have gotten pretty far, and I’m pretty happy with how its turning out with the exception of the pommel, which is far, far too thick. I should have used 1/2″ boards instead of 3/4″, and I may trim it down, but I’m afraid to do anything that will ruin this pieces, as I cannot start over at this point. I wanted to have done more shaping, but I really don’t have the tools for that kind of work. Maybe version 2?

Aside from that, some putty work, a quick sanding then paint, runes and clear coat! Should look slick in black with red runes on it!

Curtana, Complete!

With the addition of the blue ‘gems’ on the hilt this relic weapon is complete! It took long enough, but it was fun to do. I WILL make another later, but it will be much later, as I now have three commissions! Finally get to earn a little dough while doing something I enjoy!

Week in Review (April 16-22)

A lot of travel last week for work, but it was all good as it gave me some extra hours on my time card! Got to listen to some Greg Laurie and Captain Capitalism during the hours on the road (talk about polar opposites, but both are good listening). Had some rain at one job site that left everything drenched and muddy. The dirt out on some of the job sites is super, super fine, almost like baby powder. When it gets wet it sticks to the bottom of your boots like dough, sometimes an inch thick! Since your out in the middle of nowhere there isn’t really a way to get it off, either.

What’s Going on in Snappers World?

Kind of bored this morning working on database and interface stuff, as well as waiting for some images to render out (more on that later), but I feel like typing so here I go.

What’s up in SnapperTrx’s world lately, you may ask. He seems like an interesting fellow, perhaps I should learn more about him, ask him how his day is, etc.

Or maybe your just bored and looking for something to read. I duuno.

Sword #62

Finally got this guy finished. I really like it! It’s very light (should be, it has no center) and fast and can easily be used both single or double handed. It isn’t really up to snuff with my typical builds because I had to rush to finish it. My buyer backed out so I thought I would give it to my wife’s nephew. I didn’t have red/yellow paint, like the original image called for, but I think I did pretty good in the blue/silver.

Sword #62

 

Unfortunately my sword-selling business isn’t working out as well as I had hoped it would, as I haven’t sold a single thing through my Facebook shop at all. It’s a little disappointing, but I’m starting to think that this kind of thing might be best sold at craft fairs and such. I don’t know. I might try and hit some of the nearby parks, where various peoples are enjoying the nice, but hot weather. Perhaps I can entice some young adventurers in need of new arms.
