Spiky Bits

Evil Ted Smith brings us a tutorial on creating foam spikes.  If there's anything I've learned from gaming and fantasy novels over the years it's that evil loves spiky bits.

If you don't happen to have a bandsaw I have a low-tech replacement- one of those cheap "pocket chainsaws" from the camping section of your local big box store. I'm talking about the kind with a length of barbed wire connected to two thumb rings.  They're pretty useless for cutting wood, but three flavors of awesome at slicing through foam.

An electric carving knife (think Sunday Roast) works really well on foam slabs. I've got one I picked up in the early nineties that has never touched . . . er, um, protein but has diced a lot of foam.
