And Now For Something Completely Different!
In making the frames I just used photos along with an explanation. They are in the Gallery. I made the frame from Cedar Dog-eared fencing you can find at Lowes or Home Depot. I bought several pieces of it and nailed it up outside so it would weather over time. Gives it a much better look. Each time I take one down to use I nail up another in it's place so I always have a supply on hand. I use that fencing for everything but fencing.
In the next post we'll do the back piece and then start the carving. Of course you can go ahead and Google "Native American War Shields" and get a jump on that part by picking out a design for your shield.
