What follows is guide on how to make a sword using the most simple and straightforward method suitable for a beginner - stock removal (in other words, taking a length of steel and shaping it into a fully functional sword).
While this guide has been designed with the beginner in mind, learning how to make a sword is a fairly steep learning curve, requiring a fair amount of experience working with power tools - so we do not recommend this method if you are under 18 years old or are not a natural DIYer..
That said, for those of you willing to give it a try, the following guide is a great place to learn the basics of how to make your a sword based on the techniques used by sword artisan Brendan Olszowy (aka 'Brenno') from Fable Blades.com[/*:m][/list:u]

christain: Well, now $800 poorer. I worked out a payment plan of $200/mo. So, that saved me a couple hundred...then my wife spent most of it on groceries! Oh well, no new toys just yet, but I CAN EAT.

redscorpion: I can't wait to get the property tax bill for the new car this year. It's going to be a lot of fun stroking that check to the State. Probably could buy another car with that money...

ouroboros: Howdy Red, i didnt send much last year...that might be a problem.but then again I disnt make much either

redscorpion: Paying taxes is easy. Just ask yourself two questions: Did I make money last year? And: Did I send most of it to the government? If you answered "yes" to both questions, relax, you're a good citizen and the government will leave you alone.

ouroboros: I still have to work my taxes out for the year...being the lesser of two breadwinner s might actually see me get a return this year. Yeah...riiiight

William Swiger: Taxes suck major ass. I claim 1 deduction at the higher single rate and still have to pay a little more on both federal and state.

christain: ...and the tax-man taketh away.

christain: Got a nice refund from the Fed's though, but the state takes it right back. Oh well, at least I'll have a house for another year.

christain: G'morning, all. This day sees me spending $1000. Too bad it's going to the state of Texas for property taxes. I could buy a lot of toys for a grand....or one reeeeeally good one.

ouroboros: First Day of spring sees -5degrees off my riverward north deck. Should be warmer 😎

christain: Sometimes I think the ants ride in on the skeeters backs, then get dropped off so they can form an advancing shield-wall, then the skeeters continue an aerial assault. Either way...you get bit.

ouroboros: Mosquitos we get our share
Mar 19, 2019 22:15:55 GMT
ouroboros: Fire ants. We have a scourge of Blackflies but not fire ants luckily
Mar 19, 2019 22:14:56 GMT
christain: I think (hope) winter has seen its last days here. Now, for the legions of mosquitoes and fire ants.
