Ragnarok is my interpretation of a viking helmet. It is made of Myrtlewood and Walnut. It is 25 inches wide, and 13 inches tall. Thanks for looking.

Nicely done. I assume the handles are for the viking wives to keep control.

Thanks so much for your kind words. I actually “finished” this early last year, but felt like it needed something else, so this past week I added the lower face guards. I feel like it made a lot of difference in the feel of the helmet. @ Triumph1. I did use the lathe for all the components, however, the horns were the big challenge. Each horn is comprised of 14 seperate (4 segment) rings, and a solid tip. Works out to 57 pieces for each horn. I drilled a hole in the middle of each segment, stacked them on a dowel, slightly shorter than the total length, and then applied pressure against then with the tailstock and carefully turned them round. I then seperated them and beveled each ring on a sander, glued them all into the final curving shape, and then did a lot of sanding to smooth everything out.
