Cut broomstick

Cut your wooden broomstick or dowel to thirty inches in length. The diameter of it doesn't matter too much. Mine is one inch thick.


Cut out template pieces

Print up the template and cut out the pieces. There are four pieces labeled A, B, C and D.

Also cut out the patterns in the middle.


Trace template onto foam

Tape pieces A and B of the template together and place that on cardboard. Not foamboard. Cardboard is preferable for this because it is thinner.

Trace around it and trace those hole patterns in the middle of it too. Cut that all out of cardboard.
Make two of these. One for each end of the polearm.


The traced pieces

Now tape together template parts C and D. Also cut out the big slot in the middle of it. And trace this onto foamboard. Make four of these.


The cut out blade pieces

Okay! You end up with six parts like this. Four foamboard parts and two cardboard parts.

Let's put this polearm together!
