Turned low rider style cowboy hat. This was turned from ash and finished with clear Danish oil followed by two coats of satin Minwax poly. Hat is less than 1/8 thick and weighs 6.8 ounces. This style hat was a special request and was turned to fit the new owners head. The waterfall effect goes across the back of the hat and through the brim. Inspired by JoHannes Michelsen.

I’d be petrified to pick it up, it looks so delicate. I am in awe of those of you who are able to do these kinds of turnings. How do you keep it from cracking as it dries out? Just looking it causes great intimidation.

Goodness me,

more art then woodworking. Looks crisp, real and I love the way the grain paints its own picture : )

Stunning piece of perfection

You really do know how to “wack” wood! The workmanship is fabulous and the use of the grain coloration looks superb! Thanks for sharing.
