    I've often thought of this....however I can't settle on anything I truly like. I'm not huge on shields with words in them, or asymmetrical shapes...

    Symbolic shapes like rocking chairs, or porch swings probably won't make attractive shields

    I thought perhaps a porch light would be good as a shield shape, but not sure if it would be quickly recognizable

    I agree it cant be anything with words or assymetrical. I was thinking more like our take on a traditional style shield similar to what Kifer did with their shield.

    I’m jumping ship to the pineapple (AKA bomb) shield. It’s an obligation living in Hawaii.

    I'm just going to sit here and pretend like everyone jumped on my bandwagon and voted for a custom anchor shield.

    I know it didn't happen, but it is happier in my imaginary land where it did.

    I voted houndstooth. But I felt like I was wasting my vote. So I switched to Federal.

    Glad to see bomb winning this morning! It's definitely my favorite shield and will look amazing on the ironwood or Blackwood.

    I switched to the bomb shield. My first choice (Diamond) was losing votes and that Orleans shield, no matter the orientation, is just a little too over the top.

    Bomb! Classic and modern at the same time! A perfect, classy, balanced and unique choice for African Blackwood or Ironwood. Glad to see it's in the lead. :)

    Nah. Try the white "G" with a forest green background, encircled by gold. Could go for that.

    Yessss I had hoped bomb would surge it’d look great on ironwood while the Orleans would look better on the Blackwood

    I have been Osage and Houndtooth since the beginning, even though I am rooting for Blackwood and wiil switch before d-day. Had to make the switch to Bomb today. It will be classic on the Blackwood.:):cool:

    Everyone voting Bomb, please make sure you voted correctly so they all count!
    One vote must be "with shield" and only one other vote for "Bomb":thumbsup:

    I would like to go on record as changing my vote to the bomb. Now I just hope that AB can make a comeback!

    I reserve the right to change back if ironwood wins out. Haha

    I helped you out by switching to Blackwood in the wood poll to tie it with ironwood. At least for this second. Who knows what the vote switching will be like on the last day.
