This hat display is made of the very rear and hard to find Cuban Mahogany. This display will hold the hat of the cigar industry’s icon Carlos Fuente who passed away this year. The turning part was done on a lath, the base was done on the Legacy mill. The plaque on the bottom of the base is brushed aluminum with a brass finish, I made a stencil and sandblasted the lettering on the plate then sprayed the plate with A 14 to make it turn black and a top coat of lacquer to seal it all together. We used Odie’s oil for the finish.
-- Have a great day.
