I would love to learn how to do crafts with wood...This might be a dumb question but what tools are you using on this project?

not a bad question. I cut out the main, large peice with a bandsaw. Most of the smaller peices ive used a scroll saw on, and to get into the inside closed sections without cutting through i drill a hole to put the scrollsaw blade through. the triangles i cut out with a razor knife. for finishing i use an orbital sander, random bits of sandpaper, and one of my favorites, a random stick with sandpaper glued to it.

I made a quick run to the hardware store, got some good stuff, a bunch of springs, a couple dowel rods, and brass tube.
I got the trigger mostly functioning, along with this

it fits into the slots beautifully. tomorrow ill be able to take the clamps off the tube there, and start glueing on all the peices.
i hope to have this as finished as possible for the reach release, so im probably not going to have a scope or proper clip till next weekend, but i hope to have the main body paintable by the end of tomorrow.

Awesome work. Great detailing!

Next time youre taking a close up. Use the macro setting on your camera.
It should look like a flower. Your camera probably has it

SHE IS ONE. (or mostly) I got all the parts glued up, bought some paints, and rounded out the handle parts. Also made the temporary clip space filler. I didnt have time today to even out all the edges, but that comes tomorrow. I only have to do that, spruce up a few parts here and there, smooth out some things, and paint. I hope to finish this tomorrow by 6-7, might be a stretch, and then its off to gamestop till midnight!
