Fire up the project on a piece of 1/4 inch MDF (14 inches tall by 18 inches wide).
PLEASE BE AWARE, I DID NOT USE TABSSand the pieces to knock off any burs or defects from the carve. Spend a little extra time on the trigger piece so that it will slide easily.
Locate the scope and bracket piece (four dowel holes). With the bracket on the table place the scope on top of the two inner holes. Glue these two pieces together. Place to clamp on the two pieces and set them aside. I leave the dowels long so they are easier to fit. After the glue dries you can flush cut the dowels.
The bare wood design is great and you can stop here. OR you can apply your paint of choice and sand as needed. I rounded the handle and trigger a bit more and used a combination of acrylic paint, spray paint, and spray poly.
PLEASE REMEMBER to highlight the end of the blaster with a high visibility color.
