Thanks very much for the suggestion E-T I'll have to get that come payday.
Progress. Sheild. Have finally got the handgaurd on, first tryed to keep it on there by securing fairly large cardboard panels to the ends then securing those to the sheild, didnt work so put holes through the panels and shield and got some good swed one part got cut into a panel for the front of the sheild to stop the strips of swed pulling through then the strips were pushed through the holes and back through the panels at the back several times then sections of swed were glued over the whole thing front and back. Thats worked I picked it up this morning and its as solid as a rock, some of the thicker bits of the glue pollyfilla paste are *still drying though so will be taking the heat gun to those today.
Sword, PFK now fully dismantled everything is off the blade have drawn the basic plan so my dad can cut the wood (he still doesnt trust me with the big ass power tools) but I have to wait untill the weekend for that so am contemplating the scabard. Do I A modify the saya or B make a new one from the nice dark brown swed I have?
