Riptide Final Reflection

For this Ignite week project, I choose  Creativity (L21) area because Riptide wasn’t described thoroughly enough to make an exact copy of it so you had to imagine how it looked. I thought I grew in this area because I actually created a pretty good sword from imagination, even though it isn’t finished. Most of my classmates complimented how cool it was. One example of how I used creativity was when I had to create the grip. Even though the grip isn’t finished yet I created a crossing design. What I did was wrapping 2 strip of leather around my sword while intersecting them together when they meet forming an X.


I enjoyed learning how to use creativity this week. I think that this skill will benefit me in the future because creativity challenges the mind to go further than anybody else. With creativity you could start a trend or something popular that would go down in history. Overall, this Ignite week helped me grow because it challenged me emotionally and my imagination. Creating a specific sword with only knowing which category the sword is from and knowing how long it is, took a lot of imagining to create finer details on the sword. It is also my first time creating a foam sword so I had to change my plans everyday and it really took away a lot of time of working from the week. Something that I took away for work shop skills is that you cant rush your final product. You probably would make a permanent mistake if you rush

Develop and plan




I created and sketched out the designs and shapes of the sword. Additionally, I created the sketch to scale and created some cross guard designs. At the end of the day I scheduled each part of the sword into separate blocks each on my calendar.

The Floorboard Sword? Make it Define and Inquire

Welcome back to The Late Late show with DAVID GUODEN! My current project for ignite week is to make a sword from the Percy Jackson universe. Today I’m guessing I would focus on making a blue print of my sword. Basically the plan of how I make the sword and the dimensions of my piece. The double edge one-handed greek sword I make is called Riptide and it belongs to Percy Jackson son of Poseidon. Riptide was a gift from Percy’s father when he discovered the greek mythical world. The only challenge if making my sword is that I have a broken arm and it would be tough to cut and draw in wood for me.
