I wanted a helmet stand to display my Windlass helmet of Castille. I thought they looked fairly simple to build and found this great instructable for building one in a budget friendly fashion: www.instructables.com/id/Easy-Helmet-Stand/
My helmet is larger than the instructable author's and so I used an 11 inch round award plaque and a 14 inch bannister section. I bought my supplies from Lowes and Joann's rather than Home Depot and Hobby Lobby.
It was super easy to do with just a cordless drill, wood glue and some stain and very affordable. I thought I would share since it was such a bargain versus buying online.
I've been thinking of making a couple of armor stands out of PVC pipe. An old friend of mine owns a hardware store....maybe he'll cut me a deal. Good looking helm and stand, by the way! I've been eye-balling that helm since they came out.
christain: Don't feel alone, Scott. I gotta work Sunday while the rest of the family has Easter dinner. That's okay though...I'll just eat double when I get home.

brothersteel: Finishing up "The Robe" as we're prepping for tomorrow. Seeing the one sword fight in the film last night, I laugh inwardly at how much Olympic fencing still reigned in Hollywood in those days. A blessed Easter to all!

ouroboros: Highway between us and Ottawa that follows the river is closed today for some flood proofing and sandbag work ... and 6 of 6 seedlings are showing their first set o leaves in the grow space under 600w of led lighting...

ouroboros: Got 2 crazies of 11 and 7 years home with me today. Just ended morning tachikaze session and the weathers gearing up for another wet day.

redscorpion: yeah, cars. Always spending money on those things. I just had to put spark plugs in my older Jag. $300 just about covers cost of materials (plugs and gaskets) - then it's a 4 hour job to change them out.

christain: TGIF, y'all....Anyone have any cool weekend plans ? Perfect weather tomorrow for Ren-Fest here, but after having to drop $300 on car repairs ....maybe next weekend/paycheck. Even had my kit packed up and ready.

redscorpion: Ah, I see now. I stand (or rather sit) corrected. Nice seax. Been thinking about picking one up for myself.

christain: Congrats, Nord! Nice looking seax you have there. You've waited patiently, and now...the reward! When you decide you want a Viking longship replica built, I know a couple'a guys.....
