I'm also having trouble making edges with the gluegun. I tried using the hot edge and some toothpicks to smooth it out, and it seems to be working, but the outer edge is uneven. Can you actually sand over hot glue, and will it still come out smooth? (I making a broadsword, the sword from Shadow of the Colossus)

This is what it currently looks like but is in no way finished.

You can smooth hotglue, but not with a sander. It will sand too fast and the friction will cause the glue to melt and it will get on the sandpaper. You will have to sand it by hand, but it is possible.

i said "cut down the middle of the pieces but not all the way though the board than bend the pieces along that crack"
so you'll get them to be like this

the frist half speaks of the the lenght of the cut the second speaks of the depth

well i used wood glue bc the hot glue was hard to work with while just craming the pieces into the pattern, and i used it for like smoothing out the sword bc like i said hotglue cooled to quickly, so yeah ill probably wont make another one because it was just something to do for when i was bored :-P

Featherweight, I think it was mentioned somewhere in your photo gallery that you also make sheaths out of cardboard and glue. How do you do it?

That might not work so well because gorilla glue expands. It's worth trying but you might have to sand it or something after because it will probably deform the shape of the blade.
