Another Tenchi-Ken prop

This section seems to have little life so I thought I might add some pics of a project I did a few years ago. I had wanted to make a replica of the master key for several years before but it took a while before I just decided to go do it. The whole thing is carved from poplar with satin finish. I really wanted to make it out of wood to get the authentic look since a lot of people were using clay, resin or some other plastic. I basically learned how to carve wood with this project. The wood grain markings on the end I carved in with a fine point wood burner (looked at a lot of various pics before I found the correct pattern) and with only 3 plastic gems on one side. I left the other side plain to simulate the master key before it had the gems added. I had a decent top for it made from pewter but it was dropped and broken in the making process so I had to go back and make a separate piece out of wood as well. Only that I added a few layers of lacquer and paint to remove the wood grain look from it.

After this I wanted to make Ayeka's headdress but I never did find any useful pics of it so that project never even got off the ground.

 :christ: Are you still working on such props?

Great work!  :bravo:

looks way better than this other guys I know

Vasima we need a step by step of this prop creation on the Wikia m8

By the way, the wood grain inlay on the pommel / kashira is really slick.

I hope that you are kidding. We shouldn't place any fan-creations in the wiki.
Please help out with improving the Tenchi Muyo wiki:

Not in the main index, but perhaps under Community : Fan Creations if such a thread was made.

My apologies, but only canon material should be placed in the wiki pages.

This is a good point, we have much more work to do on the existing pages

Yes, but I am already very overworked on the other wiki that I am a bureaucrat for.

I promoted AstroNerdBoy to an administrator a while back, but unfortunately he hasn't had the time to help out yet.

You focus on that however much you need m8, I'll let you know if the Tenchi Wikia experiences any trouble.

Okay. Thanks.
