Another ‘oldie but goodie’
A project made a few years back, when I got my black belt in Judo.
Feeling like a true samurai, nay, the shogun himself I decided to buy a real steel (sharp) katana.
And having it meant it needed a place to stay, so I had to build a stand for it.
I found some inspiration and drawings on the internet and I was off!
Luckily I still had some leftover spruce planks somewhere in my ‘workshop’.
Nothing in this build is glued, except maybe for the velt stickers in the ‘hands’ to keep the sword from being damaged, all done with very tight-fitting mortise and tenon joints.
A fine finish in a high-gloss bloodred paint completed the picture for me.
And now it has shown my sword proudly on my bedroom windowsill for years. So burglars beware!
I hope you like it!
