Did this video help you?

Deadrazr77: I live in hawaii, so I don't have pipe insulator, what else can i use?

Ultima Haxor: this sheild looks real legit but how much did it cost (plz answer)

spacecadet35: Good tutorial. We use "fluteboard" or "coreflute" (like they use for real estate signs) instead of cardboard. But the principle is the same.

James McDonald: ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ஜ۩۞۩ஜ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ DAMN THIS COMMENT IS FANCY ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ஜ۩۞۩ஜ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

Justin Case: why make a foam shield that`ll brake much quicker than a wooden one? Sure, wood is heavy, but it`ll last longer.

MasterQueb222: The tape is incredibly ugly

gatheringthemagic98: What on earth is gutter strapping? Id really like to find some. Btw not sure if you know...the link to your site is broken

James Tello Jr.: try foamcore posterboard- more durability

Yin Chu: Thanks for the tutorial!

Brian Scott: Ok one of you need to make one of these for me. Now! 

neal justus: i like what you do with the fome stuff can you do the same thing but with wood instead of cardboard 

Tomas Rocha Martins: How would you recommend making a center grip shield?

EpicWinNoob: Okay Let's see yours.

ladyofthegaladrhim: Could you make a tutorial for a elven shield?

MrKrendin: This shield is very nice...I used the same design for mine, and it has held up a beating. Thanks for making this video and I just used the same concepts for a bigger one. Thank again.

Krystian Bulicz: That's right!

James Fullmer: @DuykRuyk A surprising amount. My teens have used them for years and they are only just getting to show wear and tear.

James Fullmer: @psychowaffle2010 Very

PuppeteerGaming: How much would something like this cost, relatively speaking?

Khrene Cleaver: @tomballom yeah, this is the same tactic I used to make a cardboards sword. The problem lies with the foam. You'd have to wrap the foam around the shield in a different manor or leave it out all together based on on the shape.

RTard48JRod: MAKE MORE TUTS PLEASE!!! you are soo professional! thank you my lord~!

QuynnV: @JurassicDavidy Oh well get them off of eBay or better yet buy a shield from eBay

James Fullmer: @tomballom (A quote from Raising Arizona) "Baloons! Hey these blow up into funny shapes at all?" "Well, no - Unless round is funny." Try any shape you like. I like round.

Thomas van Orsouw: Round ís a pretty classic shape, you know? ;)

James Fullmer: You wouldn't think so but you'd be wrong. It's surprisingly strong. And the cardboard core makes it very light, much safer and requires less padding.

Kim Brown: oh ya, and also, it i put a piece of the foam completely over it and stuff it with news paper will this help with recoil? i battle friends with nerf swords, and the shields they sell just dont do the job, my friends play very aggressively

Elm0rePr0ducti0ns: This shield looks terrible

Raguel22: @KenteousAwe if you place a pin in the center of the cardboard and tie a string to it, and then your cutting tool to the other end (keeping in mind your using the radius size not the diameter) you can use it to cut evenly in a circle. Just duct tape the small hole when your done... :) or just draw the line you will cut along this way but instead of the knife use a pencil or pen..

Smittfortunes: Does this pass dagorhir weapons tests?

Elzstudeos: is it okay to use gorilla glue

Thom8264: You can never have enough duct tape.

Porterhaus: How'd i make a Boss for this? I'm going with a Viking loadout and i'd like to have an accurate shield.

tomballom: Could you do this without it being a circle shape?

CptTrippsMusic: You can get treadmill mats at sears for about 25 to 30 and you get a fairly large piece

Sugardaddy501: this shield is supposed to be this size and shape idiots; its a boffer shield for play not larping.

nomad82shuffler: love this shield

MegaMetal4eva: 1 Question, I do 12th century medieval re-enacting and we use wooden shields with rawhide around the outside and painted linen on the front (to stop the wood chipping as we use blunt steel weapons). Is this ok to use in LARP as my gf wants me to join in with her and if not do the LARP style shields last longer than they look (cos they look to me as if they will fall apart after a few hours of fighting, although that may be because re-enactment fighting is more brutal and I'm used to that).

Jason Todd: Love this. Good for the common man who doesnt want to go expensive or complicated

tomcorocks45: lol, the backside is still messy :P

nerfreconmaster752: He said 7/8" at 3:31 didn't he?

DRiguana72: Would it be at all possible to maybe make a tutorial on building a square punch shield?

Ian Aguilar: is there any other tape i can use like duck tape and can i first tape the hose before the shield's body??????????

James Fullmer: @nomad82shuffler You are now my new favorite person.

TheStarwarskid1997: Is this shield Belegarth legal?

psychowaffle2010: is this sturdy? i need to know asap

Dwight Angelo: :D

Dannor the planeswalker: hi im thinking of makinjg a sheild like this but a few questions first: can you tape the foam onto the cardboard instead of using that spay stuff and can you use only 2 layers of cardboard instead of 4? please reply that would help me out alot. ;)

Maverick Jones: Probably should coat it with something like latex or isoflex just to prevent larp weapons from being damaged when they strike or rub against the shield though

MsMurtagh Morzan: Do you have an idea for wonder woman's shield? I want to make one for halloween

Kai Putney: you suck
