My oldest grandson is a Cowboys fan, his wife a Packers fan. So I made them helmets of their favorite teams as a Christmas gift. They measure about 8 1/2” x 8 1/2”.
As with most things I do, I have to experiment with different ideas as they pop into my head. With these helmets it was seeing if I could layer some of the pieces especially the face guards. I also inset the snaps and the piece for the ear hole in pre-drilled holes. I stacked the wood for the logos and then cut them to ensure a proper fit.
The Packers helmet is yellowheart, cottonwood, walnut, and mystery wood for the face guard and stripe. The Cowboys helmet is birch, cottonwood, walnut, and mystery wood for the face guard. The snaps are modified oak pegs.
Merry Christmas one and all!!
