Weapon-building workshop

Would anyone be interested in putting together a weapon building workshop sometime before the next event? We can get materials from do-it-best hardware (SKU 436193 for 5/8" wall pipe foam) and PVC pipe from anywhere.

Depending on what people want to make I can order 1/2", 3/4" and 1" pipe foam with the proper 5/8" wall at $5.49, $6.29 and $7.99 respectively per four pieces.

This would be going down in Lexington.

So far people want to make:
3 Shortswords (1/2" foam)

That would be cool

If you could get things together in time for the event May 18th, that would be cool. I am going to be needing to make a pair of shortswords.

EDIT-

I need to make a greatsword as well.

Vargus right? I think that can be arranged.

If anyone's interested I can have a saber saw/jig saw and sawhorses for people to use for shield making.

Sabersaw/jigsaw? what in creation are you making shields out of? hehe

Sorry, all kidding aside, if you got arthritis, like some people, you might wanna look into choroplast shield. Ultralight, and easy to make. If anyone wants pointers, post here? I am midway through making one, and i can take pics and make a small tutorial

I was going to make it out of some scrap plywood I have laying around, the only shield I ever had was made of the same stuff. If you could make a tutorial it would be most appreciated.

I would not mind making a few more weapons for our arsenal. I would be interested in an ultralight longsword, a possible staff, and maybe an axe or mace. I'll let you know more later.

A definite date would be great. Tuesdays are currently best for me, but when school is out, I will have more free time.

Date

I will pretty much not have the available cash until school is out.
