During my summer vacation I built Lord of the Rings inspired wooden swords for the kids. I love these kinds of projects, where you just make something because you love the craft, and someone will be very happy with the result. The image on the cover is Sting (That Bilbo had, and handed over to Frodo). The other two are Orcrist (Goblin Cleaver, that Thorin Okenshield got) and the last one is Glamding (which is what Gandalf had). Three elven swords, made in Gondolin.
Orcrist had a handle from a dragons fang.
I donät have a picture of it painted.
Here is Glamding taking form
Here it is finished.
And finally Sting:
Here are some photos of the swords used as inspiration:
