Hello, folks! This week we have the finished product of my "Really Unnecessarily Cool" Revolver, or "R.U.C." Revolver for short.
As I mentioned last week, the handgun is made out mainly Aspen wood with Red Oak for the grip. It is also based on the Webley-Fosbery design, although I simplified it and added my own details. After I finished shaping it and carving the main details, as seen in the work in progress, I just ran some fine sandpaper over everything to smooth it out. I then applied a coat of Minwax Polyurethane Clear Gloss, let it dry, lightly sanded it smooth again and applied a second coat of Polyurethane. After it was dry once again, I buffed it a little with an attachment on my dremel to knock back the shine a tiny bit. I think it all turned out rather well.
Also, again as I mentioned last week, I made this for my acting class and I think this is the first time a "prop" of mine has actually been used as a theatrical prop. Hahaha... It served me well. Well, I hope you like it and please look forward to my future projects.
