Curved, round shield, with random pieces rim re-enforcement, and steel centre boss. It was a trick to get that centre boss to fit so well...it is a compound curve on a compound curve. Its even more difficult than it looks and it looks darned difficult!
The maple centre handle. I didn't worry too much about arm straps or paint....I figured the client would do all that! And he did....he actually painted it all green, and left the steel nice and shiney with silver eagles nailed on the face. But that wasn't my department, I just supplied him with a nice shield.
And you can see the almost finished product...the boss is 16 inches across, and oval. The shield is thirty inches across.
