Nice work guys. Now make deals with WG and sell 'em!

 

I'm going to make it my mission to make terrible cardboard tanks for every contest, no matter what it is! Muhuhahahaha!

I had a lot of fun doing it, grats to the other winners as well.  It gave me an opportunity to learn a little more about tools and what not.

Please forgive a few of the pics not having gamertag as they were taken during action but I wanted to show proof of process. 

 

I decided to make my coaster from Cedar. Great resistance to moisture damage and will last a long time as permanent fixture in our home. I took the WOT Logo as inspiration.

 

Starting with a plank of Cedar to finished product.

It was cut out on the bandsaw

It was then split in half on the bandsaw

Each of the halves were then sanded using a belt sander

The WOT logo was then transferred to one of the halves and a hole was drilled to accommodate a jig saw.

inner pieces were then cut out on the band saw.

inner pieces were profiled with a small file and 400 grit sand paper. 

all the parts were then glued, clamped and allowed to dry. They were then taken to the torch for the burn phase.

Raised segments were then sanded with 400 grit to finished look. Small burn tool was used to fill in areas missed by the torch. 

Here it is now ready for service

 

on the back

 

 

 

Tank you for the inspiration, this was a fun little project. The Coaster was finished with food grade mineral oil and will be the home for my drinks while I tank through the night. 

   

 

Well.. I WAS going to try this contest.  Saw this.  Gave up.  Well played, sir.  Hope you win.  :smile:
