Project #14, Laser cut Stave

I also need a weapon to go along with my shield . I should have laser cut more of this but I still needed to carve the angles on the top and bottom by hand anyway. If I do another then I'll be blocking out the shapes on the laser first before trimming it down. (files lost) Project 14/ 22 Weeks

Project #13 Laser Cut Weaponry

Some of you may already be aware that I 'LARP' as one of my hobbies, it was even briefly mentioned on the Make magazine blog . There is a new game starting this year, Empire LRP , which promises to be one of the largest fest events ever seen in the UK with record numbers of pre books and untold numbers turning up on the gate. Anyway I digress, a new game means new weapons for my character.  I had done a quick test with Plastazote before so I was aware that you could cut it with the laser but now I had the opportunity to make something I actually needed. I drew up some quick sketches for a shield and came up with this design, cutting each scale out individually is not something you would ever bother doing by hand so it fits a criteria of being unique. The shell logo identifies the group and the rest of the shield is a standard construction. (files lost) 13 projects/ 22 weeks
