The main part of this project will be dishing the Boss on the buckler
Step 1: Tools and supplys
I recommend 16 gauge, that's 1/16" thick for you Americans, and 1.5mm for most everyone else.
-a jigsaw with metal and wood blades
-A dishing hammer
-files or a grinder or something to de-burr your edges.
-a 14" steel drum lid and clamp (or other edging material)
not necessary but REALLY helpful
-a drill and 1/8 or 9/64 drill bit
