I've been pretty busy lately building some new projects and testing them out.One of which is meant to be a battle ready large wooden shield. It is almost complete. It's pretty heavy, good for blocking ax and sword blows but a little too heavy for what I was planning. That's what testing is for though. Once I have the thing painted I want to do some destructive testing on it, namely take a whack at it with and ax and shoot it with an arrow or two. I'll upload some pictures of that when I do. Let me know in the comments below if any of you might be interested in seeing a video of it.
That project has taken up a good chunk of my time but I have been working on other things, including custom orders. Some of the custom orders include a spear for cosplay which I need to finish before ComiCon, and some home decor for sports fans. The later being a pair sabers and a heater shield for Raiders fans.
The saber is now up on Etsy as a listing of it's own and the Heater shield is now an option under the shield listing.
Well that's about all I got for today, testing and development is still underway with my other project. It is working pretty well but I need to adjust a few things before I am ready to launch. I know you'll are probably intrigued as to what it might be.
Tell you what, if you find that you can't wait another two or three weeks before you find out (and honestly it's killing me to have to hold off the launch), let me know in the comments below and if enough of you do this I will give ya'll a sneak peek if you promise to to give me some constructive critique and ideas of what could be added, or what it could be used for.
Until next time,
