Today I took the first step for the Sword Grip. I wan´t some kind of "Mecanicus"-Style with some easy materials from my shelf.

Step 1:

Four pieces of wood, salvaged from a Flatscreen-Package.

Step 2:

Prepairing the pieces with white glue and some screws.

Repeat this step....

and then bring the two pieces together (with more screws and glue)

I used a saw, to bring both ends of the handle to the same lenght.

Step 3:

I took some electrical wire for homeinstallation (3x 1,5mm˛)....

and stripped them from the isolation to get some nice looking copperwire. Now for the long hard work. covering the woodcore with copperwire. It took me 10 Minutes for a nice beginning.....

but unfortunately i don´t like the overall look and the feeling of this first try....

So i scraped this prototype, but i can still use the pics i took for a small "First Look". I will keep the copperlook, but I will move on to an more elegant Design......

Ceya soon
