Along the lines of my last post, after thinking a bit about where I want to go with my next projects, it hit me that I have a growing pile of heavy scrap metal in my downstairs garage. I like armor, I have templates for cutting. New Mando Armor! This is a set of Jango plates that I cut from these templates a few years ago, out of trashcans. Steel armor, though has a much cooler cachet. And seems like a manly undertaking much more than using craft knives to cut out trashcans.
Other projects that I will soon be undertaking include making a scabbard out of basswood for one of my lonely blades and building a shield out of a good rondel of plywood I also have laying about. Should be a busy year, 2010!
