The Utah Woodturners club has a summer activity from April through October where we get together at someone’s shop on one Saturday morning each month. This is a great time to observe and share. We’ve fixed lathes, solved tough problems, and shared experiences.

This year, we’ll add a service project to enhance the other activities, wig stands for future cancer survivors.

While your mileage my vary from this one. This wig stand uses 5″ 8×4 cedar for the dome top; 6″ 8×4 cedar for the base, and 12″ 5/4 cedar for the center spindle. Mine is finished with walnut oil. It will not make it to a end user until the oil has fully dried.

While a wig stand will not relieve their current pain, hopefully, it can help them deal with their emotions.
