My laminated scutum.
Hello everyone. My name is Sergio Escudero and I shield´s manufacturer in Ars Scutae.
A few days ago I finished my last order, an historical laminated oak scutum.

This is a imperial rectangular scutum with four L-shaped pieces on the front of the shield. Made with 3-milimeters 3-layer oak slats. Coated with linen on both sides and painted with rabbit skin-based paint and natural pigments. Hand-forged iron boss with iron rivets. Edged in brass. Handle in beech.

Height: 107 cm
Width: 69 cm
Deep: 22,5 cm
Weight: 8 kg approx

I attached photos so you can see the result. If you wish to see photos of the construction process, there are pictures in my Facebook. I hope you like it, and if you have questions or need anything, do not hesitate to ask me.
