Just made this last night. I may stain the recycled teak base darker. The plastic head is on a piece of lab glass that just happened to fit the neck. The metal is inset into the wood base. I made the plastic head glass rod accessible from the side so it can be swiveled around. James DeMartis (metal smith) helped by cutting out the nice oval window . This is a Madame Alexander doll head from 1965.
