    It isn't a plate, seems more like a jerkin. Probably 4oz leather at the most. I had a nice picture page for it bookmarked but I can't find it now.

    Does anybody have a good pattern for making Faramir's leather chest plate/jerkin? I followed Calarustithil's link but the page isn't there any more. I really want to make this, can anybody help me out with patterns? And advice for tooling the silver tree?

    A great site to find design information is LOTR Costume Research Home.
    Here's a direct link to their Faramir's Ranger Garb page: Ranger Garb You can find a template/stencil for the tree here, too.
