This is a project my turning club, The Central Illinois Woodturners is currently involved in. The wig stands are donated to the Susan G Komen Foundation and are given to cancer patients.

Two things make this program successful. We have a wonderful company that donates all their hardwood scraps and very willing participation from club members.

The first 2 photos show 37 stands decorated by a local high school’s senior art class. The remainder are stands made by club members. We have donated 350 to date.

As point man for the project I collect and process the wood into “kits” which are handed out at club meeting. I am so proud of my club for their continued support.

They are ALL Very Nice Terry! I’m also Proud of YOU for heading up an Organization Like that one!

” I am so proud of my club for their continued support.” and so YOU should be!

Good for you My Man! “Giving Back” is always a Rewarding Experience for those of us who know what it means to do so!

Great project and so good of you to organize the work. Very neat to have the high school students involved as well.

Wonderful. What’s the size of the blanks? How long does it take to turn each one?

I can turn one in about 30 minutes depending the species of wood. The blank for the top is 5” dia, 2” thick. Base blank is 6” dia, 1 1/2 thick. Stem is 1 1/2 sq, 12” long. Finished height should be between 13” to 15”. You must finish with poly to make it moisture proof.

Have your say...
