Step 1: Step 1: Tools and Materials
-8 wooden planks (we will talk about size later) roughly 3 inches wide
-16-20 screws roughly 2 inches long
-1 sturdy leather belt
- (OPTIONAL) Washers that fit your screws
-Jigsaw or other saw that can cut curves
Step 2: Step 2: Cutting the Boards
For this step, you need to line your boards up side by side (leave one out for the back support)
Next, cut a segment of string as long as the radius of your shield (distance from middle to outside) my shield's radius is 11.5 inches.
Next, place one end of the string down in the center and keep it there with your finger. tie the marker to the end and then draw a circle around the planks. This is the template you will use to cut the boards.
Now, take each board and cut both sides one by one. Once this is done, take the board for the back (this one should be 5-6 inches wide) and cut it so it fits on the back of the boards.
Step 3: Step 3: Assembling Boards
Basically all you are doing is placing two screws parallel to each other about every 3 inches.
SoJust screw the back board into the circle boards.

Step 5: DONE!
