Started work on the Greatsword this week. Going smoothly so far. The only thing I've done differently here is that I used a steel rod as support in the handle, the wood alone wouldn't support something of this size. It's scaled to match my height at 5'6", and so far is made of poplar with a steel rod and a couple pvc pipes (along with a bit of apoxie sculpt.) Next job will be to start shaping the details on the hilt.
