Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: How To Build a $5 Sword!

This week’s build is actually a how-to project! Adam’s had the idea for making a wooden sword out of just five dollars of materials since his theater shop days, and shows you the step by step process of building this inexpensive but satisfying prop. It’s a build that can be done with any combination of materials, tools, and adhesives, and makes use of some of Adam’s favorite propmaking techniques!
