My daughter really likes Skyrim – loves to watch the horse riding and dragons. I made her a shield based on the Riften Town Guard design.

I cut the swords out with an exacto and glued them down, then spray lacquered over them. Started with a leather strap for the handle on the back, but that was too floppy so I added a wooden handle instead.

The 3rd picture is from the game, to give you an idea of what I was shooting for.

Chris- I have a son in college who still plays Skyrim…he would be tickled if I was to make something like that so know she is pleased. Nice work…now you gotta build her a dragon and a set of wooden armor.

Chris, looks like your armor building skills are Legendary! All it needs is to to get “character” through some “battles.” Really great work you’ve done here.

I REALLY like Skyrim, but these days, I don’t get much time to play. Funny thing is that I have gotten a lot of ideas for building rustic furniture from the game itself. As soon as I saw that shield, I regonized it as one from Riften.

BusterB’s commen is awesomet: “I have a son in college who still plays Skyrim…” I finished college 11ish years ago, and still have some videogames!

One of these days, I’ll build a display rack, perhaps to display a wooden bow.
