For this project, the process for turning is simple and the amount of turning is a lot of fun. There is spindle turning with coves, beads, etc. The base is nothing more than a shallow bowl, but with a forstner bit hole for the spindle.

The top dome was the most challenging, in my opinion. It’s like turning a bowl and flipping it upside down with no pedestal to rest on. Of course, the inside of the bowl has a forstner bit hole too.

These also make a great hat stand, if you have no means of donating. I might turn a few more for some people I know that take a lot of pride in their hats. One is for my cousin, currently undergoing treatment and two will be donated to Breast Cancer Clinic.

Here’s this weeks video: Wig/Hat Stand

Thanks

All of my projects so far have been non paid work… although the wife bought wood for a project once. But yeah, donating to charity does feel good.
