Section 2: Materials Needed and Tools Required for Making an Armour Stand

Materials Needed

When it comes to making an armour stand, the first step is to gather materials. You will need:

1. Wood: The most common material used for making an armour stand is wood. Choose a good quality wood like oak, pine, or maple.

2. Screws/nails/glue: Depending on the type of wood chosen, you can use screws or nails for attaching different pieces of wood. Alternately, if the wood does not hold with screws, you can use wood glue. Consider the holding strength of the adhesive material while making your choice.

3. Sandpaper: Sandpaper is an essential tool to smoothen the wood surface. Choose a sanding paper with the grit of 120 to make sure the surface is polished well.

4. Paint/stain/varnish: This is optional, but if you want your armour stand to have a specific colour, consider buying paint supplies.

5. Tools for measurements: Measuring tape, ruler, or protractor to ensure accurate measurements.

Tools Required

In addition to materials, you will also need some tools to work with. Although the choice of tools you use will depend on your preference and experience level, some recommended tools include:

1. Handsaw/circular saw/miter saw: Saw must be of good quality and sharp to make precise cuts.

2. Drill machine/hand drill: To make holes for fittings, screws or nails, a drill machine or hand drill is essential.

3. Screwdriver/hammer: Choose a good screwdriver or a hammer, depending on the type of wood you’re working with.

4. Chisel: A chisel is useful when making precise cuts and with intricate edges.

5. Clamps: Clamps are necessary to keep the wood in place while working on it.

6. Safety gear: Gloves, safety goggles, and a dust mask will help protect you from wood dust and sawdust that may fly while working with wood.


Now that you have an understanding of the materials and tools required to make an armour stand, it’s time to move on to the actual steps of making one. Stay tuned for the next section to learn how to make a sturdy armour stand that can hold all of your prized armourial possessions.

Materials Needed for Making an Armour Stand

Making an armour stand requires some materials. These materials will enable you to create a sturdy, functional, and aesthetically pleasing armour stand. Here are ten materials you will need:

1. Wooden Boards

Wooden boards are required to create the armor stand’s base and upright supports. You will need two 6-foot-long boards to create the base. Two 5-foot-long boards will be needed to create the upright supports.

2. Saw

A saw is necessary to cut the wooden boards into the desired lengths. Make sure you have a handsaw or power saw sharp enough to cut through the wooden boards easily.

3. Hammer and Nails

You will need a hammer and nails to secure the wooden boards together. You’ll need 3-inch nails to secure the base, 2-inch nails to secure the upright supports, and 1-inch nails to secure the crossbars.

4. Drill and Screws

A drill and screws are important to reinforce the armour stand’s joints. Make sure you have an electric drill and screws that are long enough to go all the way through the wooden boards.

5. Wood Glue

Wood glue creates an extra layer of reinforcement. Apply a small amount of wood glue before securing the joints with nails or screws.

6. Sandpaper

Sandpaper is necessary to smooth rough edges and to create a polished finish for your armour stand. For best results, use 120-grit sandpaper.

7. Measuring Tape

You will use a measuring tape to ensure that the wooden boards are cut to the appropriate length. It’ll help you create an even stand that will support the weight of your armor.

8. Pencil

A pencil is needed to mark the wooden boards before you cut them. Make sure you have a sharp pencil.

9. Protective Gloves and Goggles

Wear protective gloves and goggles to prevent injury as you work with sharp tools and wood.

10. Paint or Stain

If you want an artistic and finished look, paint or stain your armour stand. Choose a color that matches your armor or your preference. Paints and stains are available in various colors at hardware stores.

With these materials, you’ll be able to create a sturdy and functional armor stand that will give your space an aesthetic appeal.

Tools and Materials You Will Need to Make an Armour Stand


If you’re planning on building an armor stand, then you need to make sure that you have all the necessary tools and materials. You don’t want to start building only to find out that you’re missing a crucial part or tool in the middle of it. Here are some things that you will need to make your armor stand.

Measuring tapeWooden dowels
Marker or pencilWood glue
Circular sawSandpaper (various grits)
Power drillStain or paint
Drill bitsScrews
Sawhorses (optional)

Preparing the Materials

Once you have gathered all of the materials together, you can begin preparing them for the building process. Sand the wooden dowels to make sure they’re smooth and free from splinters. If you’re going to paint or stain the armor stand, do it after all the sanding is completed. This will save you some possible mistakes and protect the paint or stain from sanding marks and dust.

Cutting Dowels to the Appropriate Length


Using a circular saw, cut your wooden dowels to the appropriate lengths. The exact length will depend on the size of the armor stand that you want to build. If you’re not sure about the dimensions, make sure to refer to a guide or research designs online. It’s essential to double-check your measurements before cutting the dowels to ensure that they fit well together.

Drilling Dowels for Assembly

Once the dowels are cut to the appropriate length, you will need to drill holes in them. The holes should be slightly smaller in diameter than the screws you will use to connect the dowels. Furthermore, dowels should be placed and secured in the right position, and It’s important to make sure that all angles and lengths match to ensure a sturdy and level stand.

Assembling the Armor Stand


Once you have drilled holes into the dowels and ensure that they are snugly fit, you can start the assembly process. Place the dowels together with screws and appropriate glue and let dry. When assembling the armor stand, make sure the connections are firm and level. Finally, allow it to dry for a few hours before using it to store your armor and weapons. It also may be a good idea to check the stability of the stand after the first few usages, to ensure that all screws are still tight and stable.

Following these guidelines, building your very own USecrets of Dungeons armor stand will be a breeze. You will have a practical display that is perfect for showcasing your favorite armor and weapons. Building your own USecrets of Dungeons armour stand may even become the beginning of an enjoyable hobby, and can help you save time and money compared to buying one.
