Too lazy to shape it to my head so it hinged each section, it has a nice floppy feel to it. Uncomfortable but that’s true of all crowns, the loneliness of command.

I made it for the Kawerau Woodskills Festival next month, but they changed the categories so I can’t put it into wearable wood after all, it’ll go in with the dressing tables and what have you so I am not expecting to win a prize. I’ll just have fun wearing it around the house haha.

It’s made of pallet wood and offcuts from the scraps bin. And oh yes, it’s a copy of one my cousin made out of cardboard and ping pong balls many years ago. Thanks for looking.

Very cool. Best of luck at the wood skills competition.

I love the idea of a wooden crown. You should wear it out in public and see what people say – whatever it is you can reply that you are the King of Forest :-)
