Beware of battle-elephant

Sword and Shield

I had a very enjoyable weekend hanging out with my son, Jackson. This is just a brief post with a picture of the fruits of our labor - a battle-elephant-topped shield to match the sword we made a couple months ago. It’s been on my to do list for a while now and I’m happy we’ve finally finished it.

For the curious, it’s a kitchen cutting board, cut down the middle (we made two shields the same size), painted silver over a black ‘primer’ coat, with a battle-elephant stenciled on the top (blue for this one, red for the other one). He and his 4-week-old sister are really going to have fun playing with them.
