I make highly accurate shields that are either fully authentically plank built or ply built (but you would never know), they are fully finished inside and out with either gesso or leather and fully harnessed.
Metalwork is hand forged, padding is done in canvas and wool and all leather is vegtan or rawhide. Shields can be painted or left white from the gesso.
Where appropriate they are covered in leather or linen canvas and can be gesso covered over this. Metal or rawhide edging is used where appropriate and they all come fully harnessed.
Any bosses used are hand raised and any riveting/nailing is done with rose head nails.
I hope to be expanding these pages over the next year or so.
