This year a former colleague of mine wanted to get something special for his son’s first birthday.
He asked me to make a wooden sword and shield to decorate his sons room. It should however be sturdy enough to use as a toy once his son got older. You might ask how he came up with the idea, since his son is still so young.
It so happens that the card sent out for his birth had a cartoon style knight on it with a sword and shield.
Since toys are sometimes left outside I thought pallet wood would do nicely for the shield.
The sword is made from a treated kind of pine for outdoor use.
