New Ecranche (Jousting Shield)
I have only just finished a new ecranche for jousting with historical solid lances. I am jousting at the St. Ives Tournament in Sydney next weekend so nothing like leaving it til the last minute.

I didn't get any construction photos, but I glued and curved 7 layers of 3mm plywood and then cut out it out and joined in the side section with glue and long timber screws.

And jump to finished. It has 6 layers of cloth and glue over the front face. Then painted.

At its thickest it is about 25mm.

i'll keep an eye out for them at the festival if i decide to watch the jousting for once
That is beautiful....a work of art. No way would I let a lance scuff that up. May the Saint protect you, my friend. .........McM
