This was the gong away gift for one of my best friends who was getting out of the Army.

The helmet is made of tiger maple and closely resembles the USACE helmet we where on a daily bases. The background is some cherry that I had left over from an old project. All the pins are our units insignia.

This project came to me in a dream one night and was a chance to do something a little different when what I normally do.

That’s a really cool project. I have seen similar where they used the front half of a fire helmet but never saw one where the helmet was actually made out of wood…NICE
