My compliments on a truly well done 'ible. this is clear and concise, and would easily be adaptable to a fully combat-grade shield, simply by employing armor-grade leather and iron strapping in place of the hide and bridle leather, and using metal for the knots and spike. Once again, congrats on a truly excellent 'ible!

Thank you, You are absolutely right about the strapping. I guess this ended up being more of a functional "Ceremonial Shield" Than a true battle piece.
yes, but it is still remarkably well done, and ends in a beautiful finished product.
