This center-grip viking shield is made of 1,8 cm pine wood, stained with leather dye.
The wooden construction is all glued and made by my brother. The shield boss and "metal" parts are made of leather treated to have the appearance of metal. The leather is glued and nailed unto the shield.
It features a strap which allows it to be carried over the shoulder.
The weight is slightly above 2 Kg and the construction time (Not counting the wooden construction by my brother) was 14 hours.
It's created with LARP in mind - The wooden construction seems sturdy enough for reenactment though the wood is rather soft.
I wouldn't mind making more of these so if you are interested in one I recommend going to twitch.tv/thatdanishguy where I stream my work. In the description there're guidelines on how to custom order items. Use the email there to inquire about a shield.
I charge 10 Euro per hour and materials is about 10 Euro so it's not super cheap.
(If you are interested in just the wooden construction and not a finished shield, my brother sells these as well for about 60 Euro)
