Started as a continuation of my winged series, however due to “design corrections” it had to be modified so ended up with a lid to make a sort of hat,
The brim was Turned from beech, the lid hollowed on the lathe and the outer hand carved for a change. 150mm x 110mm x 60 h,
sealed, laqured rubed back & mop polished.

Thanks everybody, this started as a 3 tier set of reverse wings and a bit bigger, however with this type of turning sometimes you win & sometimes you lose, the edge of the brim is 1 to 1.5 mm thick, this time I lost :(
Always tomorrow :)

Very nice, I have a mouse that it should fit very nicely but I think it will require a strap, or maybe some consturction adheasive.
