Making a Shield: Cutting the Blanks - prt.1


Peace of wood from the $2 scrap bin at Totem.

It is hard to see, but the pen is attached to a string which is attached to a tack stuck in to the wood to create an outline as a cutting guide.

I used a jig saw (the wood is clamped to the table saw)

Making the slits for the straps. I start by using a large bit and drilling the slit edges.

Then I use the jig saw to cut the slit from hole to hole.

There we are, 2 shield blanks!
