No if were talking about historical acuracy (at least Viking wize) they made their sheild from very think sheets of wood layered at 90 angles to each other so modern plywood is actually the most acurate stuff you can get, and after a quick read I see that Rohan sheilds are made in roughly the same way. Thinking about a copper edgeing for the sheild, wont match the boss but will be far easier to work with.
