This is the Greek shield that I made with Dad and painted with Mum.
I made the shape myself. I drew the pattern onto a piece of paper and then cut it out and stuck it onto the wood and drew around it. Then I used Dad's jigsaw to cut it out. For the handle, I cut blocks of wood and used a bit and brace to make holes in the blocks for the poles to go through and then screwed the handle onto the shield.
Then Dad painted it black for me.
I found a design I liked in a Greek warrior book, I pencilled the design onto the shield, and Mum helped me paint it on.
I'm really proud of it.
