Well, howdy pardner. So mini things to do. I’ve wanted to turn a mini hat on my mini-lathe and I finally got around to it. It is Zebra wood. I havn’t applied any finish as of yet. I’m thinking maybe an oil of sorts.

Yeah, its kinda thick. It goes with my thick head. Do you think Festus would wear it?

Edit: Updated HERE.

Are you sure it is a hut or army bullet-proof helmet? Whatever, the smallest is the hardest and you’ve done it very well.
