Wallmount Cowl Display - How To & Pics


Here is a simple cowl display I whipped up at work today. It was amazingly simple, and very easy to do. I work for a blind manufacturer, so I have access to all kinds of raw materials.

I used a piece of 1" thick lumber cut 7" by 7". Drilled a hole directly in the middle of it. The rod is a solid piece of 1/4" thick aluminum, and the ball is a wood ball finial for the end of a drapery rod with the base cut off.

Once the rod is hammered in the ball, and the wood just bend the rod to your liking, and paint. The base is attached to the wall by drilling a hole in the back at an angle and hanging it on a screw.

Re: Wallmount Cowl Display


Those look AWESOME Dave! I've had a few ideas on doing wall-mounted ones myself, but had not yet tried anything. Well, my friend, you've taken the guess-work out of it. Those are beautifully done. Thanks for posting those - I'll be trying my hand at one very soon.

Re: Wallmount Cowl Display


Excellent idea and nice execution. I have to warn you though latex especially has a long term memory and I believe urethane does too. If you do not want to be a permanent cone head Batman one day replace that small ball with a full size ball soon. The ears will stick up straighter immediately and the whole thing will keep it's shape better through time. The bigger ball you can get in there the better. You want to be close to the natural curvature of the inside of the cowl roof itself.

Re: Wallmount Cowl Display


That's good info. to know Paul... Thanks for that advice. I've been displaying most of my cowls on a 6" styrofoam ball. The small-headed cowls (the ones that fit me) do fine on those, but the larger ones tend to have the "conehead" shape to them when on those stands. I did not realize that they would take that shape permanently. I'm going to change those to the 8" ball ASAP! Thanks for that little bit of insight...
