If you want to make a metal buckler we are limited on tools. We will making 16 ¡V 18" round bucklers, you may bring whatever wood you wish but remember the heavier the wood the heavier the buckler. You can get pretty much all your materials at Lowes or Home Depot. They have 2 ft x 2 ft sheets of plywood or hard wood laminate, you will also need handles. Many will use the old style garage door handles and you need to consider what to use along the outer ridge. Depending on the trim will decide what you use to secure that trim; nails, glues etc. We will help you drawn out the circle, help cut the wood and work with you.

We are working out the details now, but there might be a couple classes depending on interest as she will only do groups of six. We are shooting for the month of July right now. We have some other things in the fire as we hope to have a different class each month.
