Gorgeous shield; pray tell, do you have any advice for someone wanting to build a shield of their own.

I'm an Asatruar, needing a shield to adorn with my tribes banner, and this exemplary model of artisan grade handiwork shows a steady-hand and patient mind behind the piece; as-such, I humbly request advice in this matter.
