I had a lot of scrap hardwood flooring from our home renovations, so I found some really beautiful pieces and got to work. Most of the sword is made from left over cumaru teak flooring that I recently used in our house. It has a really beautiful grain pattern and some elegant figuring, plus it's extremely dense and hard. I had just finished watching Alec Steele's series on making a Damascus steel katana, so I had a rough idea on how the whole thing went together. First, I drew out the rough shape of the blade based on some online dimensions. I cut out this shape on the bandsaw making sure to leave a tang on the bottom that would fit inside the hilt. I rough sanded the blade to give the sword some definition and moved on to the tsuba, or hand guard. I found another smaller piece of teak flooring for the tsuba. I used some calipers to measure the tang dimensions and transferred those lines to the blank tsuba. I drilled out this space and had to chisel and file the pocket very carefully so that the blade tang would sit snuggly into it. After I had a good fit, I cut the tsuba into an oval using a paper template. After researching how katana hilts are wrapped in cotton or silk strips, I decided to recreate that look with an inlayed contrasting wood. I had a piece of scrap oak flooring from my boys' room which would look awesome against the teak hilt. While I worked on other projects, I had my friend Josh CNC out the hilt design and the resulting diamond pattern looked just like a traditional fabric wrap. I hogged out the inside of the hilt to receive the tang and once I got a snug fit, it was time to assemble the major components. The tsuba fit onto the tang and the tang fit into the hilt. I added a kashira or pommel to the end of the hilt and it was all done. I finished the katana with some linseed oil and beeswax polish and it looks gorgeous! I am so happy to have my own sword and I feel like a true samurai! If you liked this woodworking prop, check out the playlist above for more!
My favorite stuff on amazon: https://www.amazon.com/shop/aguydoingstuff This video is a montage of an 18-video canoe building series I spent 8 months making in 2016. Watch all the videos here: https://goo.gl/624XaV THANK YOU!!! - to everyone who donated to #ripcanoe to make this possible - to people that have been watching, liking, commenting on, and sharing my videos - to all the people that helped me during the build process - to my beautiful wife for helping so much and putting up with all the sawdust Disclaimer: I don’t always follow best practices for safety (working without gloves and respirators, free-hand cutting on a tablesaw, forgetting to wear goggles). Everyone has their own risk tolerance, I’ve developed some bad habits over the years, I’ll probably end up regretting it when I get cancer at 50 or cut some fingers off. Please be careful for your own sake when doing stuff. Here are a couple good resources to learn more about Cedar Strip Canoe Building: https://www.amazon.com/Canoecraft-Illustrated-Guide-Woodstrip-Construction/dp/1552093425 - “Canoecraft” is the cedar strip canoe building bible. Buy it and read the whole book before you start building. http://forum.woodenboat.com/ - This site is actually really helpful. Usually if I type a specific boat building question into google a previous forum post from the Woodenboat Forum is near the top. You can also post your own questions. http://www.instructables.com/id/Building-A-Cedar-Strip-Canoe/ - This guy (Jim Clem) made a very detailed step-by-step guide to cedar strip canoe building. There are a lot of helpful process explanations for some of the trickier parts of building. I used his blog a lot while building my first canoe. Feel free to comment on this video if you have any questions! Thanks for watching!
