In this project you will need:
1). Any sort of plywood
2). A jig saw of any type
3). Two saw horses
4). Clamps
5). Masking tape
6). A pencil w/ sharpie
7). Spay paint (silver, navy, red, and gold)
8). Utility knife
9). Wood glue
9). And picture of the Hyrule shield

Step 1: Draw Sheild

On the plywood, draw out the shield and then go over the pencil with a sharpie.

After drawing out the shield, lay down the masking tape and use the utility knife to cut out the shape of each detail.
Absolutely love it! I like The Rambler's idea of adding a handle on the back, for carrying purposes. Now, I just need to learn how to make me a sword! :D<br> <br> BTW, I featured your build on <a href="http://www.nerdeh.com/2013/03/diy-life-sized-hylian-shield-from.html" rel="nofollow">the Nerd Eh! blog</a>. Keep up the great work!
<p>I can teach you how to make the master sword</p>
I know this guy in real life, I was there when he made it. Great job man!
This is really cool. I love builds like this. Did you do anything on the back for a handle or is this just meant as a display piece? <br> <br>One thing I would add is that it would probably be better to sand down the edges before painting.
<p>Sweet I will try and make this with pics when I have time</p>
I am currently working on adding a handle. at first it was decor but after walking by it everyday I just want to wear it.
nice detail work!
