Christian, a.k.a. kyros_arsenal, took some plain medium density fibreboard (MDF) and transformed it into a beautiful World of Warcraft prop: Frostmourne. He started with blueprints and attached them to MDF to cut two copies out that he then glued together (two layers made for a thicker, more substantial profile). He sculpted the skull by hand before painting the MDF with primer and two layers of black paint and then turning the blade a metallic, frosty blue. You can see early stages below.
Note: if you’re planning to take a MDF prop to a convention, check their prop rules before you start crafting. Some don’t permit anything but plastic.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
