Very neat!! It does give the term “BLOCKHEAD” a much nicer meaning than it used to have!

Hats off to you.
I tip my hat to you.
I am brimming with ideas after seeing this.

Seriously, very nice, in fact very cool indeed.

I have some questions.

  • Is it comfortable to wear?
  • Is it sturdy enough to wear?
  • Is it turned from wet wood, and will it warp as it dries?
