Very impressive and elegant case. I would expect to see the Hope Diamond for transport using this case.

Thanks folks. This Forum isn’t really for posting photos of other people’s craft work in making hats. But, I can post links, and other materials to promote the customers that are using my tools. Thanks for the idea.
