[quote]Do you have enough foam to make another layer of shield? If so, you could glue the rod to the back of the shield you have (AFTER attaching the handle to the centre of the rod so that it will fit into the hole) and then glue another layer of foam over the back of it.
Or if you have corflute and no rod, you could glue corflute to the back of the shield, after following Dave’s instructions for attaching the handle.[/quote]
I have plenty of materials, so its just a question of what I want to do. I have two blanks at the moment, so I have scope for experimentation.
But I’m certainly remembering all this for next time, since I’ll have similar-sized offcuts in future.
A question: where do I get appropriate carbon-fibre rod, and how much am I looking at? Since its used for weapons as well, and I’m thinking of a dagger sometime, I should probably source some.
