Started on the shield today. I wrapped the handle yesterday with nylon string but didn’t like the look so today I bought some hemp string and it turned out better!!
I also repainted the shadows on the blade. I did a sloppy job the first time and had to sand it down and start again. I’m pretty happy with it this time.
I have to figure out how to add the arm strap to the back of the shield, then paint it, then I’m done!! Yay!!
I did this in about 4 hours from start to finish. I wasn’t sure how to construct it but thought of the round hand guard while at the hardware store.
This thing is build very sturdy. The handle is pressure fit, then epoxied. The grip locks the cross guard in place.
I painted a shadow down the center of the blade to make it look hollow ground. I’m going to wrap the handle with leather later this week.
I’m making a Knight costume for my son. It will consist of a Flail, Sword and Shield.
Sketches for props
I still have to leather wrap the handle and weather the wood a bit more

Prototype with final version
Just finished this logo and booth idea for Schwab & Company.
Here’s a pic of the model and part of the sketch I did for it.
I started to scribe the fin lines. I used a marker to show what they would look like.
I added a ring to support the fins.
I decided to add a lighted engine core. I cut out 3 areas so it can be seen.
I tested the lighting out with a small flashlight.
I’ve got all 3 fins finished, now time to add all the details.
This was in Austin the other day. He’s getting pointers from another knife thrower.
I took these back in 1985. Just found them in storage. Prince sure plays a mean guitar!!
I will be making this into a 2 foot model. I’ll post more pics as I go.
Here’s the basic shape

My friend gave me some free KISS tickets for tonight’s show in Houston. Here are a few pics.
I took this pic the other night. Very cool!
Got this sweet lenticular Resident Evil pic at Comic-Con.
