How to Make Saruman's Staff Part 3

 

In this part of the tutorial we start the actual building of the staff.

 

Part 1 of this tutorial is here

 

 

 

The template

In the template is a page with the fin guide. There are two pieces. Cut out those two pieces.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Detail of where to cut

When cutting the larger piece. Cut the area shown by the red arrow at the dashed line. This is so you have some spare room to adjust your pieces to fit the size globe you need. All the yellow area is wiggle room for you.

 

 

 

 

 

Tape templates together

Tape those two template pieces together like this.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Trace out four

Now use that template to trace out four identical pieces.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cut out those four pieces

Now cut out those four pieces.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Will

Will's Tips on Cutting Foam board and using smaller foam board sheets : Don't try to cut all the way through it in one swipe. Use a really sharp blade and make three passes. the first pass just cuts the top layer of paper. Second pass cuts the foam and the third pass cuts through the bottom layer of foam.

 

The first piece is cut

Ok, the first piece is cut out. It looks great. Cut all four out.

 

 

 

 

Cut the staff handle

If your wooden dowel is not the right length go ahead and cut it to the desired length now. I cut mine so it is four feet in length.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Glue globe to handle

Now glue your globe to one end of the wooden staff. I am going with the Insta Morph globe. I used a hot glue gun and a liberal amount of hot glue.

 

NextOk, Let's finish this staff by adding the fins and painting it (continue)
