I think this was my first axe and shield set… The shield was made from a very old oak floorboard and uses car body filler as metal detailing. The axe handle is carved in oak and is based on one carved by Ian Norbury. It has inlaid copper details and has a real steel head. (I know its on the wrong way around! I thought it looked better that way. I wouldnt recomend its use for chopping anything!)
Fun decorative piece to make…

That’s really cool. Any chance you have some close-up photos? The details seem amazing.

Very big pic… close up you can see on the dragons head where I have badly edited the image onto the background!
Hope this link works…

Quite an interesting piece, the background really compliments it.

Cool stuff. I got a knot-head son who would love to get his hands on that and tear up sum stuff. Looks very real.

Really great looking work. You could have sold a lot of these in 600 AD, or maybe even in 2012!
