Some friends are having a big mythology themed Halloween party this year. I signed up to help with some props. Today I got started on the Thor's Hammer and the Egyptian Obelisk.
Next I put some triangles together to make the top. Same technique, but I had to bevel the inside nailing strips.
I put that all together just loosely. The top cap doesn't fit well, so I'll probably have to work on that some more. I also cut out and assembled a quick square box for a base for the whole thing.
Pretty cool for a couple of hours work. I'll get these all attached and get the edges cleaned up. I think I'll make a mount on the base so that the obelisk slides down onto a dowel or something so I can take it apart easily. Then I'll prime it all, paint it, weather it, and put some Egyptian heiroglyphics on it.
