Adam Savage's One Day Builds: The Crown from Hamilton!

1 701
One of the ways Adam has been getting through lockdown has been binging television shows, including Netflix's The Crown. And in the midst of his obsession with the show, Adam builds his own replica of the most important piece of The Crown Jewels: St Edward's Crown used for the coronation of British Monarch. Adam's replica is based on the stage prop made for the Hamilton musical, and will be the centerpiece for his King George costume!
Materials for making the Crown:
Long Leopard Coat
Stretch Velvet
Dalmation Stole
Mirror Tape
Gold Crystal Rhinestones
Ruby Rhinestones
Gold Car Trim
Multi-color Rhinestones
Multi-color Jumbo Rhinestones
Gold Beads
Silver Chain
4" Gold Fleur
Multi-color Gems
Gold Christmas Ornaments
Nickel Fleur
Shot by Adam Savage and Edited by Joey Fameli

The bit of dotted scarf at the front of the crown has two black dots *precisely* where the upper corners of your glasses are. If you wear the crown the right way it entirely blends together with your glasses and you look like you have the most spectacular eyebrows. 1:09:48 is one such moment. ;)

The US is a constitutional republic not a democracy why is everyone so united is pushing this message like something straight out of a Ministry of Truth torture chamber NO war does not equal peace, and it never will. Furthermore it's not bizzaro at all seeing how nobody seems to want to talk about the time in 1971 when the weatherman underground a radical LEFTIST group BOMBED the very same capitol along with the pentagon and numerous police stations, you remember when Bill Clinton pardoned the leader of that group Bill Ayers don't you. So please spare me the pearl clutching when you clearly don't care one wit about the time bombs were set off in those 'sacred' buildings or when the very bombers duly convicted by judicial process were allowed to walk free.

The real reason Adam is making this crown is for a coup to declare himself the true heir of Emperor Norton the 1st, Emperor of the United States of America and Protector of Mexico.

That crown was built in 1661. Way before the industrial revolution and even further before the idea of standardized parts. It is probably very jank in its construction as are a lot of things from that time period.

Not sure why Adam didn't bend 1 "arm" to be the right height and curve before attaching it. And then use it as a template for the other 3 so they are all the same, instead of attaching all and trying to bend all 4 by eye.

Have you ever given any thought to the fact that that face on your head mold is the exact face you will be making in your coffin? I dont know why i thought of that! maybe I was thinking about my best friend that died and how his face looked like he was just tired like how you look when you wake up from a nap. So just a strange fact i guess you have a face mold of what your face will look like when you die!

Faith that a project will look good in the end, even when it's going through the early ugly stages, is something that I still struggle with. I can completely relate to the glee when things start looking like they should. (Imagine the stress the poor medieval craftsperson must've been under though, doing this in gold with no power tools...)

I really like the editor's choice of putting Adam's occasional words over the time-lapse footage. I can get a little exhausted by the time-lapse-music, it gets pretty repetitive when used for too long. I like the time-lapse segments to BE long, it's just that the instrumental JinglePunks music doesn't always hold up after 30 solid seconds just by itself. So the talking-bits put over top is EXCELLENT!

I feel the theatre prop pain for sure. I once had an actor come back to me and say a door hinge broke. Turns out they had somehow sheared the pin inside the hinge. I still have no idea how they did it.

@31:10 Straightening metal — the old blacksmiths trick, taught to me by masters in the Blacksmiths Guild of the Potomac, when there wasn’t anything else to do, was to have the apprentices square off all the old round stock, and round off all the square stock. They would learn how to square and round off and otherwise work the metal, and you could see how good they were at doing it.
