This is one variation of the play swords that I make. I haven’t found a kid that doesn’t love these. This one is made from Catalpa with a Maple insert. I usually make these from Catalpa because it is soft and has a beautiful green irredesence. The joinery is fairly simple: two lap joints. The finish is drug store variety mineral oil. The sword is 19 inches long. Thanks for taking a look at my projects!
