2nd April 2010: Katana started... With a mistake as expected. I was helping dad with sawing out the main base/form of the katana, but as we both dreaded something did go wrong when that was almost done: my dad had cut it in half by accident. I realised it first then he noticed why I was laughing to see how he had cut into the wrong side. This was why getting a long board of wood is handy, as with the second attempt it was even cut better.
Got the design sorted for the Tsuba now as well so its just cutting, sanding and glueing left for the main making of it.
Then I will be left to paint and decorate it ^_^
